Bug Description

When trying to help users, if any of them runs --debug the first line of the command output is the jenv file which contains sensitive information. This makes it very hard to help users troubleshoot without them leaking their credentials.

I believe this is fixed in 1.21. While comparing a 1.20 and a 1.21 bootstrap I noticed that 1.21 doesn't dump the cloud-init script to stderr. There is no cert or password or access key shown in the 1.21 --debug, but there is in 1.20
