[Feature request] Any chance of ARM instances?

Are there any plans to provide ARM Droplets, similar to the ARM instances offered by AWS, Scaleway, Linaro, etc.?

I’m more interested in energy efficiency and sustainability than cost saving; I’m sure a lot of the workloads on Droplets would work just as well on ARM CPUs as Intel ones, and use considerably less energy.

My dream setup would be a managed Kubernetes cluster of ARM-based nodes.

I don’t personally see ARM servers as being something in our near future, but the future is never certain, so we like to hear what customers want to see.
