I've finally gotten the time to port ec2-converter from appliance-tools 
into virt-convert. This module works a little differently than the 
normal routine. There is no output configuration file and no disk 
conversion, rather the disk being mounted, all labeled file systems 
mounted and rsync'ed into a newly created file system image. The new fs 
is then injected with all necessary configurations(fstab,ssh, eth0 
config, matching kernel rpm, ami-tools and api-tools) The kernel url is 
hardcoded to the latest Fedora EC2 kernel, but can be made to accept any 
in the future. The same follows with the ec2-api-tools. The output image 
can then be used against Amazon's ami-tools for bundling/upload.
