@kroy how about testing this in 1.3? It must work now.

The configuration module from 1.3 is almost completely compatible with both 1.2 and 1.3, so we are close to the moment when we will have a new Cloud-Init in 1.2 or at least the same cc_vyos.py in both versions. Since in old cc_vyos.py was too many weaknesses, there is no sense to backport a single feature like this, because it will entail backporting most of the fresh code anyway.
