This is really powerful and nice, but it is very different from what
we've called feature 'user_data' so far; we should call it something
else, say 'user_iso' or whatever.

We should also support straightup 'user_data', i.e. the ability to post
a base64 encoded string on instance creation, which we will then put
into a fixed file (say '/deltacloud-user-data.txt') in a new ISO image.

Wouldn't plain old 'base64' work here as well ?
