Announcing ami-creator

Hey everyone --

After fighting with too many different tools where none of them acted like I
wanted last week, I've gone ahead and put together a simple app that uses
all of the python-imgcreate stuff[1] to generate an image that's usable for
an AMI in EC2.  Very simple: kickstart file in, disk image out.  I still
need to put in the pieces to auto-bundle and upload the image if desired,
but at this point, it's already very useful to me at least.  If others find
it useful, I can take the next steps of packaging it up for Fedora, etc.
