ZPanelX AMI build for AWS EC2

I'm a huge ZPanel advocate. Cirronix use ZPv6 ourselves and include it as our supported hosting server of choice for clients, as such it was quite exciting to find time to evaluate the latest release - ZPanelX. The initial installation instructions were quite lengthy so I'd held off until an official script was released for Ubuntu 12.04LTS. According to the ZPanel team the new version is a complete rewrite with several new features and a slicker codebase, so, let's take a look, see how easily it drops on to an AWS EC2 instance and evaluate what's needed for AMI replication.
