Ok. Cool. There is a gotcha however -- currently the "image_name=os%d"
line confuses the parser, so it's left alone. The ConfigParser
interpolator has undefined/unclear semantics according to its

SafeConfigParser, which claims to be sane, barfs at our image_name.

Maybe we can convert the image_name line to play ball with SafeConfigParser?
