[PC-BSD Testing] bug/feature request for User Manager

When creating a system account in User Manager, the drop down menu for selecting the shell does not include /sbin/nologin. This should be added as it is a security risk to create a system account with a shell. If this change gets implemented, can it also be MFC'd for 8.2?

Also, it might be a consideration to add a drop down menu for home directory. That way /nonexistent and/or /var/empty could be added. If so, would also adding /home to a drop down menu keep the logic that the home directory will be created as /home/$username for a user account? At the moment, this field is not a drop down menu but instead auto-fills in as the user types the username; this is handy but isn't such a good default for system accounts.

Cheers,

Dru
