Using boto, is there a way to create an AMI from a snapshot ID?

http://serverfault.com – There's a command in the AWS EC2 API called ec2-register or ec2reg which has an argument -s for snapshot ID. You are able to create an image from a snapshot. I'd like to be able to do this in Python (currently using boto), but it doesn't look like it's built in functionality within boto yet. Is there still a way using boto to create an image from a snapshot id? Also assume, architecture, kernel, and other attributes are available and S3 access if necessary. Thanks. (HowTos)
