Fast-Resize, even if no more available RAM on hypervisor

It would be nice if we could more easily resize when there is no more available RAM on the hypervisor. I'm OK with powering off the droplet during the resize, but having to take a snapshot, destroy, then quickly rebuild seems unnecessary. Couldn't DO just handle this behind the scenes, and seamlessly move the droplet to a hypervisor with the requested resources?

    Hi Jason, We have recently made some adjustments to our resize system that fix this issue. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-resize-your-droplets-on-digitalocean Unfortunately our NYC1, NYC2 and AMS1 data centers do not yet have these new resize features. We are in the process of upgrading those datacenters to our latest codebase.
