ok, one thing that's never clear: What's the best way to get the current AWS region inside of a
ComponentResource
?

It's unfortunately not super simple if you want to handle both first-class providers and default providers.
But there is some boilerplate that does work - let me find it.
We do hope to generalize the helpers in
aws.config.region
to be able to look up the region associated with a given provider or resource to automate the process better (those helpers were designed before we had first-class providers).
