Add possibility for Private Floating IP

Digital Ocean currently supports public facing Floating IP's. This is great, and I use that on the haproxy part of my infrastructure that load balances my application servers.

This however, is not suitable for backend services like a database cluster that is only going to be reachable from the Private IP of the application servers.

Adding option (public or private) when creating a Floating IP could help a lot of Digital Ocean users, and simplify the setup of highly available platforms etc.

    A way this could be done, would be a similar way to the already existing IP, which is creating some sort of alias on the public interface. Similarly, an alias for the private interface could be set up, and use something like virtual ip in the core.
