Is NTP optional on GCE or is it a must have because of some other stuff?If it is optional, I'd suggest a plugin as well. Just hack it together in a minimal way, you can always add options later on :-)

p.s.: Try out the development branch. I've added quite a few fixes. Also: I think you might benefit from the minimize_size plugin using zerofree. It zeroes out unallocated disk space, which increases the effect of compression A LOT. I tested it on an almost barebones setup with ssh, sudo and nfs-client: (gzipped) 118 MB :-)
