Please change the  Environment Entry Properties value input type to a textarea,
instead of a text field.  We sometimes need to input multiline values here, and
a textarea would make this much easier.

Otherwise, really enjoying the admin webapp.  Very useful!

Sigh, I've been meaning to get to this for months, but to no avail ;(  I see it
every time I go over the bugs before cutting a release, but never do it.  Seth,
if you still care about this and want to send it a patch, I'll gladly review it
and commit it as relevant.

The following tests are successful with the patch:
- add a new env property
- edit an existing env property
- enter several lines in the textarea or a large wrapped line
- no regression with other types (integer, boolean, ...)
