Order a Monitoring Package

Build a SoftLayer_Container_Product_Order_Monitoring_Package object for a new monitoring order and
pass it to the SoftLayer_Product_Order service to order it. In this case we'll order a
Basic (Hardware and OS) package with Basic Monitoring Package - Linux configuration.
For more details see below.
