Awesome! For 7.2 Google Compute Engine will still start out using the shell version without cloud-init -- these will go live this week I hope -- but our patch for cloud-init to support Compute Engine is in the BTS and in Debian experimental waiting for us (or anyone else!) to have a free moment to test with it.
We hope to share your great work on the python version and use that with cloud-init in time for 7.3 or even a subsequent 7.2 image (ours have dates in their names so we ship more than one per Debian release).
Thanks for your work, glad to see this coming together!

I started an instance of ami-ad5a0bc4 with a trivial user-data script and it worked well. Cheers,
I am re-basing the changes to build-debian-cloud and then hope to release 7.2 with it this week. Just saw the new cloud-init release, so if that proceeds to stable-backports shortly then it will be picked up.
