That's what I used and backported. What functionality didn't work for
you? For me everything was working:
- ssh key was added in /home/debian/.ssh/authorized_keys2
- hostname was set correctly
- HDD was resized as expected

Am I missing something? What functionality are we missing because
lacking of these init scripts?

For me, the only problem seemed to be that cloud-init seems to write
/etc/modules, which I had customized in my image (we need to load the
acpiphp and pci_hotplug modules at start-up in order to support dynamic
mounts of cinder volumes). If anyone has a clue on how to fix, I'd be
happy to work out new packages with patches.

Both Wheezy and Jessie continue to use sysv-init / sysv-rc for the
moment. We do have upstart and systemd in the distribution, but IMO, we
should focus on supporting what is the default (even though adding
support for upstart and systemd would be nice).

I agree.
