Generate a /etc/hosts include section with the set of servers that a user selects via a UI

In order to setup a new set of servers via a Linux machine the D.O. machines need to be added to the user's /etc/hosts file. It would be nice if there was a file that via scp could be downloaded with the hosts information to add to the hosts file on the user's machine.

    We would recommend using a config management tool like Puppet, Chef, or Ansible to handle this Because the open source community has already created some industry standard tools for this we aren't going to add this functionality directly into DigitalOcean as that is part of a large problem set that's already been well taken care of by the above open source projects.
