Sure, here's the UI code I wrote (limited to just this one in particular):

// adds things we want on the adder page
astrocustom_plugin.add_host_pre_op = function() {

  var section = get_item(host_mod.entity_spec.adder_dialog.sections,
'name', 'other');
    name: 'puppetvar',
    $type: 'multivalued',
    label: 'Puppet Variables',

  return true;

phases.on('customization', astrocustom_plugin.add_host_pre_op);

This works perfectly, giving me a multivalued entry on the host adding
dialog box where I can add puppetvars to the resultant LDAP record
when the host is saved.  What I'd like to do now is make it so that
there defaults to being a few pre-filled as if I typed them, with the
'undo' buttons shown so they can be removed if not needed, or edited
before saving.  Here's an example of me having added three values -
basically, when I click the add button from the host page and this
dialog appears, I'd like it to look something like this with those
values there already that I can edit or remove if I don't need them:

Hopefully the above example explains my intention.  It's possible that
the answer you just gave here is exactly what I need, but I don't know
enough about javascript hacking yet to follow it.
