Digital Ocean API And Web Hooks?

Digital Ocean API great but I have one problem. I have a program that creates servers on the fly, but at the moment the only way to check if the server fully up. I have to keep pinging it after 60 seconds. It would be really nice if Digital had web hook, I think it would reduce the amount of bandwidth on my side and Digital Ocean. Dose anyone have an ideas how I could better check for a new server to be fully setup? Also do you think Digital Ocean would ever add web hooks?
