Eucalyptus remote registration

Registered by Thierry Carrez on 2009-11-10

In the same way that in 9.10 we made it possible to install UEC on two servers, we will support a greater variety of configurations, such as those explained in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEC/Topologies. To that end, we need to
update the Eucalyptus packages to support automated registration of components when they are installed on remote machines. This is complementary to https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/foundations-lucid-uec-installer-enhancement
