URL table aliases should be usable within network type aliases
It would be nice to be able to specify multiple URL table aliases within one network type alias. For instance I just setup a firewall that blocks a few countries using URL Table aliases, being able to add those to a "BlockedCountries" alias instead would make the ruleset a lot smaller. Input validation currently rejects this.
Feature #1603. Correct nested urltable alias code to be more fullproof to errors and does not break the ruleset on large lists of urltables. Though this needs a revisit to work properly since it breaks urltable alias property of reloading contents.

This is probably broken in the case when the urltablealias contents change and pfSense reloads the alias but not its nested variant.
Also if there are too many entries it adds quite an overhead to the filter reload, possibly should add the other entries to the urltable alias file and make that persist?
