Thanks!  I think this is important.

It would be fantastic if there was a general policy to add new AWS 
command line tools as they are released by Amazon for new AWS features. 
  These are about the only things I need to download and install from 
source because Ubuntu has done such a great job packaging every other 
important piece of software I can imagine using.

FYI, NattyIdeaPool [1] did not link to cloud-server-n-webscale-tech [2] 
so I added it.  It does link to packageselection-server-n-webscale-tech 
[3] which does not exist and should, perhaps, be removed.
