Share backup across droplets

The purpose of this so to allow us to quickly boot/provision new droplets using a custom "starter" image.

Right now, a backup can only be accessed by its original droplet. And since it'd be much harder to allow us to "upload" custom images, one should be able to backup a customized droplet & have the option of creating a new droplet (or restoring previous) using that new, customized state.

    Hi there! Backups have the ability to be converted to Snapshots which will allow you to create new Droplets from in the manner that you're looking to do. When looking at your list of Backups, there should be a "Convert to Snapshot" menu item from the drop-down. Feel free to email me directly if you have any other questions.
