The build-debian-cloud script already installs some init scripts in the generated images that do the same thing as far as I can tell, that the cloud-init package would do. Is this correct ?
The support for executing shell scripts on boot (by looking at the UserData first line containing "#!/bin/sh" or similar) is the same; but cloud-init also permits a alternate formats of UserData that supports more functions - as shown here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CloudInit. Of course much of this you can script yourself in a standard shell script with the current support. So moving forward to cloud-init should be backwardly compatible with what we have now.
