When using f.input :foo, :as => :text I get what I'd expect, a text area.
However when using f.inputs :foo, :bar, :as => :text, I'd expect:


A) A text area
B) An error to say it won't cast both :foo and :bar as a text area (Why though?)

it needs to do "B" or nothing (at least for now), because there's a bunch of input() options that don't make sense on inputs()

or "C": do nothing, which is still viable IMHO because the options you're trying to use on inputs aren't documented to work anywhere, right?

in general, inputs() is supposed to be a shortcut/shorthand to get you something quickly, not a realistic tool for the end result

will happily accept a patch for better documentation, or perhaps raising for unknown args (although I hate maintaining that sort of code), but I'm in no serious hurry on this... tagging with 1.x for now

closing, there's only been one complaint, no patch, no time
