In my opinion, it is not easy to support boto from Windows Azure since they
use Hyper-V not Xen for their virtualization. They have different steps to
launch VM instances.
I have seen many people use StarCluster for boto-supported cloud services
and I thought it doesn't hurt if they can use StarCluster in other services
like Azure as well, even though the services have different interfaces. I
am willing to put some efforts to port StarCluster to Windows Azure without
ruining the main structure of StarCluster. I guess awsutil.py is a main
source for handling Amazon Cloud with boto and for Azure, it may need a
separated file (e.g. wazutil.py) to handle Azure Cloud with their client
sdk. It would be appreciated if I can hear any comments and feedbacks for
