Support Datadog with Fargate

As I mentioned here Datadog + Fargate its currently not possible to use ECS Fargate and DataDog via Convox due to how the tasks are built by Convox. It would be very useful to add support for an option that works automatically by adding the DataDog “sidecar” to the generated tasks, as described in the DataDog documentation https://docs.datadoghq.com/integrations/ecs_fargate/#installation.

I’m roughly imagining that convox.yaml would have a new optional item on a service called “datadog”, with child keys for the datadog API keys and other configuration, that is then transformed automatically into the configuration of the sidecar container as part of a single task definition
