Allow instance to delete itself on shutdown

Amazon's AWS allows changing the machines shutdown behaviour (http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/terminating-instances.html#Using_ChangingInstanceInitiatedShutdownBehavior).

This feature is important to me because I want to create one-off images which run and then clean up after themselves. This would allow for the creation of client tools which run a single task on DigitalOcean without running the risk of the client not cleaning up the instance, e.g. if it crashes.
