In the list of property editors there's four (4!) variations of dropdowns. They should be consolidated into one that offers either single choice or multiple choice and then work like the other pre value editors in terms of how they publish values.

Looks good, merging!

This shouldn't have been merged into 7.9.3 which is a patch release. This needs to go into 7.10 since this is a new feature which also deprecates existing functionality.

I'll revert and port over to 7.10

After 7.9.3, we will have a new branching policy which will prevent things like this easily leaking into patch releases.

I've reverted this in 7.9 and included it in 7.10, i've also fixed up the boolean.html Html Id (see comment: https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/pull/2502/files#r175968685), but feedback is needed about this comment: https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/pull/2502#issuecomment-374809089 since we are actually removing functionality from the CMS with this change. If we want to continue being able to have publishing keys, then we'll most likely still need 2x drop down lists: one without publishing keys and one with publishing keys, or we can attempt to also publish keys based on a pre-value but without diving into the code I'm unsure if that is possible.

Setting to "Fixed" as the question has been answered, it's even backwards compatible as long as you enable deprecated editors.
