I'm not sure if it's supported in EC2 API, I was just asking.

A convenience function is not what I'm looking for.  My main concern is 
just the time that it takes to get the list then find the image then 
create an instance.  I thought if possible skipping the list retrieval 
would be good, but if EC2 API doesn't support this then I can of course 
deal with it.
