euca2ools (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Please consider euca2ools for inclusion in main.

Euca2ools provides a command line interface to amazon ec2 and to Eucalyptus. It also provides a suitable replacement for the ec2-ami-tools and ec2-api-tools that are in mulitiverse. Most importantly, it is required for interfacing with the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (powered by Eucalyptus). The tools will also be installed in the ec2-images to allow users to work with amazon from within the images.

The Main Inclusion Report can be found at:
 * https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MainInclusionEuca2ools

euca2ools depends on the following package for which MIR have also been done:

If you can get to this as soon as possible that would be great.

Thins to work on but not blocking the main promotion:
- building the man pages during build instead of on clean
- dropping the PYTHONPATH diff with upstream; I had sent a patch to upstream to fix the bug already, either it wasn't merged or it was fixed differently; see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?src=euca2ools
- Priority should be optional, not extra
- would be nice to document where that was downloaded from in copyright and/or add a watch file; the version suggests it was taken from bzr but nothing documents where that was
- these would also be nice to fix:
Original exception was:
close failed in file object destructor:
Error in sys.excepthook:

Promoted to main. I fixed the priority in the overrides as well, though it still ought to be fixed in the package at some point.
