Feature request: Cloud-init snippets

I use the “Cloud-init user-data…” to set things like the default username and some SSH keys, but each time I deploy a system, I have to remember to paste in the contents from my notes.

It would be nice if MAAS could store a cloud-init snippet that I specify, and let me select it when deploying the machine (or even better, have it be set as a default)

We already have the various commissioning and testing scripts, we have the DHCP configuration snippets, and we can choose which storage configuration we’d like to apply to the machine. Something similar for the cloud-init data would be a useful addition.
