New, simple script for listing and sorting instance events #429

I put together a script to allow one to quickly list pending instance events in one or all regions, sort by the header of one's choice, and include selected instance tags in the output. I borrowed heavily from list_instances.

I wrote this since the AWS console currently does not show instance tags on the scheduled events page and so I can wrap it up as a NAGIOS plugin and IRC bot RSS feed.

@jimbrowne jimbrowne Initial revision of instance_events, a script to list pending
events for all instances in a given, or all, regions.  Also prints
a selected tag (default: hostname)
@jimbrowne jimbrowne Allow specifying headers to display and a sort order in
instance_events.  Borrows heavily from list_instances.
@jimbrowne jimbrowne For instance status events AWS inserts "[Completed]" into the
event description when the event is completed rather than removing
the event from the list.  Add a new option --completed that represents
the window times as "Completed" if the event has been completed.
