It depend, Sometime I need to create servers with in batch through api,
but for the major of creation is with the gui.

Have something integrate in gui could be wonderful.
(Maybe something simply like an extra optionnal form in tab in the clone panel for example).

Seem that users need this too:

If you already run you own scripts, does it still makes sense to add that to the 
GUI? 
Or do you just need some cli tools to generate the cloud-init iso?
