  1. Instead of:

    --instance-initiated-shutdown-behavior '{"Value":"terminate"}'

    let me alternatively say:

    --instance-initiated-shutdown-behavior 'terminate'
  2. Instead of:

    --tags '[{"Key":"project","Value":"fun"}]'


    --tags Key=project,Value=fun

    let me alternatively say:

    --tags 'project=fun'
  3. And so on, for all simple value and key/value parameters...


For what is worth, I've created this simple Ruby script ( to read a YAML file with the easy to understand "key:value" syntax and generate the format expected by CF.
