The infrastructure to deal with deltacloud is much higher than just
using libcloud. Having to have a daemon running just to do
communication is, imo, not acceptable for something being spawned off
like this. deltacloudd makes deltacloud a non-starter for me.

sapping them is going to involve a lot of bandwidth which costs money.
Since we have a mirror inside the amazon ec2 network space snapping is
likely to be MORE expensive than just installing from there.
