Interesting - what about boto is more appealing than eutester or jclouds?

 My current thinking is to use the AWS tools provided by Amazon (
and call them directly from our test scripts, which will satisfy our SOAP requirement, but
then we have two test scripts, one that uses boto and one that uses SOAP, which will get messy/complex.

The AWS tools have several problems in my mind.
1. They aren't open source
2. Even more troubling their license actually actively limits you to
only using it for/with Amazon's service offering.

Could we use euca2ools in it's place?
