Please backport maverick's version of ec2-api-tools (1.3.57419-0ubuntu1
[1]) to 10.04.

This version brings significant improvements to ec2-api-tools,
especially "resource tagging" which is a significant improvement for AWS

Amazon announced [1] 4 features today that have been popular requests by users
    * Resource Tagging -Tag the following types of resources: EC2 instances, Amazon Machine Images (AMIs), EBS volumes, EBS snapshots, and Amazon VPC resources such as VPCs, subnets, connections, and gateways.
    * Idempotent Instance Creation - Ensure that multiple EC2 instances are not accidentally created when you needed just one.
    * Filtering - Filter the information returned by an EC2 Describe call using one or more key/value pairs as filters.
    * Bring Your Own Keypair - Import your own RSA keypair for use with EC2.
