file to access instances in EC2 via ssh(1) without any additional

When creating a new aws instance, the aws cli requires a key name to be
passed in as an argument. Do we assume that the user will pass the
correct one for their instance in the env variable?
Otherwise, the tool would have to parse ~/.ssh/config, enumerate
the user's keys in aws comparing fingerprints, and finding a match for the
key in the ssh config file.
