Cool. Quick question -- are you using instance/attributes/user-data for the
user data script? I assume so but want to check (since Google doesn't define
this specially.)

user-data is used if it is present. I discussed with cloud-init authors and we decided to use
same convention for `user-data` as EC2 even though Google themselves do not promote this.

See lines 55 to 61 for what attributes are supported:

Haïkel Guémar (aka number80) was looking at these... I'm not sure of the
current state.
