Sigh.  I need to do something about the control image generation logic.
 It should be possible to make a new one in a self-contained way, and
the common infrastructure you draw from should be cleanly factored out.

Right now, most of it is in sources/control-images but it's not in a
unified format where listing that directory makes it obvious what the
list of control images _are_, or how to add a new one.  The common
infrastructure is partly in sources/include.sh, partly in
sources/download_functions.sh, partly in
sources/control-images/bootstrap-skeleton, and then there's

I do have a sources/control-images/bootstrap-skeleton/README file, but
who would notice that and it's still too complicated.

Right, time to factor this out and clean it up, and probably create a
new repository for it...
