Allow creation of a snapshot when a droplet is destroyed

For safety (e.g. against accidental destroy) it would be great to have a snapshot created automatically when a droplet is destroyed.

If you don't want to do this automatically at least show a **checkbox** that allows to optionally do this when you are destroying the droplet.

    It would also be nice if we could have something like a "Trash" and "Recovery" option automatically, where we can allow these snapshots to be destroyed after a certain period of time... I'd be happy to pay extra for these snapshots.

    For billing oversight, droplets can get destroyed - wasting sometimes, thousands of dollars of work for the procrastinators among us. Since DO saves snapshots anyway, even though it deletes droplets and their backups, using some GB to preserve a snapshot of each DO-destroyed droplet would be invaluable.
