Select a different rebuild image then the one originally used

It would be great if when rebuilding a droplet you could select a different image / template to the one originally used.

This would create peace of mind rather than destroying and recreating the droplet, that IPs would remain the same etc.

This way you could also keep your backups should you need to rather than everything being destroyed along with the machine.

So basically it would allow you to select a generic template, an snapshot image, or a backup (but only backups relating to that machine).

    This is now available in both the API and the new CP =]

    We are building this into the newest CP and it should be available when we relaunch and it should be usable through the API already.

    Thanks!

    We are currently testing this through the API and then will be making this available via the front-end as well with the new control panel that we are in the process of rolling out.

    Thanks!

    Just another reason why this is useful is that you can keep your IP. If you destroy your droplet and create a new one, it most likely is just pure luck if you get the same IP.
