Well, the generic images just download to ~root/.ssh/authorized_keys

They don't really "generate" a keypair themselves, that's just what
AWS does and provides the pubkey via that URL.  The is
just the link-local address for some virtualization infrastructure
software.  These days they even let you upload your own pubkey.

Unfortunately our images don't do that download, although the patched
D-I image does do that when initially setting up the network console.

If you send me an SSH key and AWS account number in private email then
I will cook an updated image and share it out to you.

Not sure if it's related, but the particular SMTP error that was
causing things to back up in the first place was by the remote server
rejecting emails via SMTP errors after a *successful* connection.
