Re: can plugins get access to "cfg"?

  One approach to this is to pass in the credentials from your plugin

[plugin myplugin]
setup_class = myplugin.MySetupClass
aws_access_key = your aws access key
aws_secret_key = #your aws_secret key

aws_access_key and aws_secret_key would then be arguments in your
plugin's constructor (__init__):

class MyPlugin(ClusterSetup):

     def __init__(aws_access_key, aws_secret_key):
           self.aws_access_key = aws_access_key
           self.aws_secret_key = aws_secret_key

     def run(self, nodes, master, user, user_shell, volumes):

Another approach is to import the StarClusterConfig class in your plugin:

from starcluster import config

class MyPlugin(ClusterSetup):
     def run(self, ...):
         cfg = config.StarClusterConfig().load()

This will give you access to the cfg object for the default config
location (~/.starcluster/config). The only problem with this code is
that if the user passed in the -c option (alternate config location)
then you would not be reading the right config file. The first approach
does not have this problem.
