I was expecting that the metadata-querying script at
src/distrib/utils/embedded/files/ec2_init could easily have some
attributes added to it. But going by there aren't
really that many that make sense to add.

There is another helper script, from
pkgsrc/sysutils/openstack_init/files/ But it assumes
the config-drive option (which is not default) instead of fetching the
data from .
That script requires Python (used to parse the JSON format) which I find
a bit heavyweight.
But the "random_seed" from his data would be nice to get, if it were
easier to parse. Maybe I could just feed the whole json data string to
rndctl, it would include the "random_seed" value if it's in there :)

I was looking if there is something like "cloudinit" available in
pkgsrc. That has some ways to specify creation of users, installation of
packages, that sort of thing. But it doesn't seem to be there.
