Give a warning about SSH Keys for new accounts

I just signed up and created a new droplet. It wasn't until after that I realized I had to create the SSH key first. It would be nice if there had been a warning (or suggestion) that I should create my ssh keys first. It's significantly delayed my 55 second start time. ;-) I'm still waiting for my root password email.

    We've now updated the create page for droplets where you can add an SSH key inline. This way even when you are a new account you can immediately add and use SSH keys with droplets. Thanks!
