Download new server information using ssh keys

When configuring 50+ servers it would be nice to be able to download the list of new servers and their server name, ip address, and temporary password via an scp operation. This is more convenient than 50 emails and more secure. It should only work for new servers that the user has created. This operation is invalid for existing servers.

    SSH keys are supported in the API so you can add an SSH key to your account and then specify that for server creation then it will be automatically added for you and also no password email is sent so it is also more secure.

    Then you can just hit the /droplets/ end point and get a list of all of your servers including their IP addresses.
