boolean input: <label> gets tabindex option if <input> has it #859

All options, except id and name, provided to boolean input is also passed to the label input. For some options, it can cause problems, i.e. tabindex. Both input and label elements get the tabindex and become focusable. User must hit tab two times in order to switch to the next input and nothing happens when they hit enter while the label is focused.


f.input :confirm, as: boolean, input_html: {tabindex: 2}

results in

<li id="article_confirm_input" class="boolean input optional">
    <input type="hidden" value="0" name="article[confirm]">
    <label tabindex="1" for="article_confirm" class="">
        <input type="checkbox" value="1" tabindex="1" name="article[confirm]" id="article_confirm">

I believe there was a label_html option, which can be used, but it seems to be removed. I don't know the reason but it would be nice to have the possibility to specify label and input options independently. Or maybe tabindex can be removed from the options which are passed to the label, but i don't think it's the right way.

:input_html options should not be applied to labels, so this is a bug.
