To be clear, I have no commit rights and am a mere user, so am not
in a position to say it's a blocker. I'm just saying the more widely
useful it is, the better, and we'd need that for it to be useful.

Out of interest, in Scott's cloud-init stuff, I am pretty sure you
populate the ssh key for the ubuntu user whereas the script in
cloudinit runs as root. Does that mean you currently do:
   su ubuntu ssh-import-id keyfile
or similar.
