For a practical example: Ansible doesn't currently support Python 3. If
we change the cloud image to python3 — as is the expected plan, right?
— having that system python there doesn't provide any benefit. It's
just extra weight.

The early PRD called for a library of different images for different
purposes, in addition to the base, and I think we're still interested
in that — it's just not ready yet. That might include various
ansible-ready or puppet-ready images, possibly with other tools
installed as fits the use case.
