this image should work in most places where cloud-init works, I've
tested in ec2 and eucalyptus - and also on a local virt-manager setup
with a fudged config drive iso attached in.

At this point, we will likely need a custom variant for cloudstack,
ovirt, vmware etc. but as much as possible, it would be great to have a
common generic one that works everywhere.

Cloudstack should really just try and get cloud-init working. I still
dont understand what the challenge there is.

I'll need to clean it up a bit, at the moment its got lots of private
stuff from the buildsys in there, plus a bunch of things are done after
the build is finished.

I guess all the bits can be squashed into a tarball and left in /root -
will investigate that as well.
