In CGI.pl, there is a nice function called make_select. This nice function,
however, doesn't add a newline to each option, making it quite impossible to see
the options listed nicely in a view source window (or in any dump for that
matter). It's quite easy to add a "\n" to each option, and it would only
increase page size by a few bytes.
This patch, if applied, would cause redhat's query.cgi to grow by less than
1.7K. It would also cause bmo query.cgi to grow by less than 0.5K. I find that
very acceptable against the improved readability of the code. It looses that
"oh, this was generated by a script" feeling, too.

kiko_v2: removed $msg duh

r=gerv. No reason why we shouldn't do this, given that each line is already 30+ characters.
