Provides a simple helper to get an HTML select list of countries. The list of countries comes from the ISO 3166 standard. While it is a relatively neutral source of country names, it will still offend some users.
Users are strongly advised to evaluate the suitability of this list given their user base.
As of version 1.0.5 a runtime error will be raised if any of the user-supplied priority countries do not correlate with those in the main country list.
Note: this may cause existing applications using country-select to fail, but such failures will highlight incorrect usage, enabling the implementation to be corrected so that correct and accurate data may be gathered.
Thanks to Steve Purcell (http://github.com/purcell) for this addition.
