Description

After commenting on Ticket #4243 (https://bugs.freenas.org/issues/4243), I noticed that developers may be afraid of "cluttering" the windows with complex or eventual configurations.

They are perfectly right, but also important/specific/complex configurations should be possible to make.

So... why don't you make default to any screen the concept of "Basic Mode" and "Advanced Mode", just like seen in "Jails > Configuration" screen?
This way... the regular user wouldn't be bothered with lots of fields, and every need of expert users would be configurable.

Just an idea, ok?

BRB: This is not so much a specific request for "Basic" and "Advanced" UI elements so much as a general design point to remain cognizant of while building the UI screens.
