Glance, boto and image id


Hi all,

I am using boto library to access an folsom installation, and I have a few
doubts regarding image IDs.

I understand that boto uses ec2-style id for images (something like ami
ami-<16digit number>) and that nova API converts glance IDs to EC2 id.
However, it seems that there is no way from the horizon web interface nor
from euca-tools to get this mapping.

How can I know the EC2 id of an image, having access only to the web
interface or boto?

I could use the *name* of the instance instead of the ID, but the name is
not unique...
