Implement network rewrite in new UI
Implement a comprehensive network UI that allows the creation of bridges and managing what is connected to them while also allowing simple vlan setup and management. this would be extremely helpful in environments with many jails and/or VMs. A user would be able to easily setup multiple exit interfaces for groups of VMs or jails.

- Assignee changed from Release Council to Erin Clark
- Target version changed from Backlog to 11.3
KDragon: the middleware is being rewritten for 11.3 to address all of this.
Erin: let's keep this ticket as an umbrella for the UI work for the network management redesign.

Nice to see that my original idea got followed up. I think this is THE missing piece which would make FreeNAS THE best virtualization platform out there. Even if it looks weird to some but having jails, docker and bhyve guests on top of ZFS is so charming.
Lately I stumbled upon vlan aware bridges in Proxmox. This is so nice. Instead of having a bridge for every vlan there's only one bridge now with lots of vlan tags.
Would be really charming if something like this would also be possible in FreeNAS.
