JSON extras appear in package edit form mangled

It is possible to use the CKAN API to insert JSON format data into package extra values, but this data is displayed in the package edit form.

Example: Package http://ckan.net/package/hbz_unioncatalog in the API the extra value as a list:

"extras": {"publishingInstitution": ["http://lobid.org/organisation/DE-605", "http://lobid.org/organisation/DE-290"...

yet when you edit the package it loses all the quotes and brackets: http://ckan.net/package/edit/hbz_unioncatalog {{{http://lobid.org/organisation/DE-605http://lobid.org/organisation/DE-290... }}} so when you save the package, the list is mangled into a bad string.

We don't need to support JSON extras at the moment.
