Warden - Ability to have a Base jail with With Slim jails.

Would be very convenient to have some functionality similar to ez-jail where you have a core jail directory that is mounted nulls readonly among thin working jails as an option.
Give us the option of a full jail, slim jail, base jail, linux jail, etc.

If option base jail is selected, user is presented with options to install base options to be shared among slim jails.

If option slim jail is selected, user is presented with available base jails to be mounted RO in the thin jail.

Adds that extra security as most of the system files are now read only, and saves disk space on subsequent jails. Would be a nice start.

The Warden has gone through a fair amount of work for PC-BSD 9.1, as well as the transition to ZFS only (simply cloning a "base" jail snapshot to create a new jail now). Please re-test the new Warden and see if this is still an issue.
