Hi Fred,

Sorry for the extremely delayed response, I was at a wedding and then moving apartments as soon as I got back. This is great work, thanks for contributing! I'm hoping to get this functionality out quickly, however, I'll have to wait to merge this code until the next version along with the SGE load balancing code. I'll give you some feedback after I go through the code more thoroughly but at first glance this looks really good.

Subject: [Starcluster] Version of StartCluster with support for Amazon Cluster Compute Images

  I have cloned the StarCluster git repository to and added support for the Amazon
Cluster Computer instances.
This has been tested with boto-2.0b2 and with the Amazon generic Cluster
Compute hvm AMI ami-7ea24a17 (which is not, of course, StarCluster ready)

The "start" command has a new feature that if the -x option is used, it
will restart a stopped one.
The "stop" command will stop rather than terminate ebs backed instances
(if they are not spot instances).
A new 'terminate" command has been added to actually terminate a running
or stopped cluster.

Please feel free to try it out and let me know if there are any problems.

Next challenge is going to be building a StarCluster hvm compatible
image. If anyone has done this, please let know.

- Fred
