allow configuration of custom packages when building droplets

I think it would save a lot of time if users could specify packages that should be installed during the setup process for each type of image, that way I don't have to wait for the droplet to be up and ready to start the install of, say, nginx or php.

thanks!

    Hi, You are currently able to User Data configure your Droplet on first boot. This includes installing packages.
