Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: euca2ools

euca-describe-images rather unhelpfully gives no output when one doesn't
specify -a, -o, or -x.  This isn't necessarily a problem, but it would
be nice to either search *something* by default or print a warning that
says, "Hey, give me something to search!"  This especially causes
confusion when one specifies an image to look for but no options.
``euca-describe-images ami-bb709dd2'' yields no output, for example,
even though the image clearly exists and is visible to the user.

ec2-describe-images defaults to listing all images owned by the user
when given no arguments.  It searches through all images visible to the
user when an image ID is specified.  This may or may not be a good
default, but if the default is to remain searching an empty set, then a
warning saying so would be beneficial.

euca2ools-1.2-1.fc12  (Fedora 12)

Right now this is an unmodified build of 1.2.
