I was wondering about exactly this.  As a cloud user I would expect
rebuild without explicitly specifying an image to give me the same
thing it did on the initial build.  I suppose it would depend if
shelve/unshelve is supposed to me transparent like Andrew mentioned.
I would assume it would be without reading differently.
