question about EKS; it seems that creating clusters with
eks.NewCluster
results in the cluster name having a random suffix attached. This might be fine for creation, but it also applies to imports, leaving a situation where an existing cluster can never be imported because the source name and the imported resource name is different.

This is due to the Auto-Naming functionality in pulumi - https://www.pulumi.com/docs/intro/concepts/programming-model/#autonaming. You can override this by setting an explicit
name
as described in that same section.
