i'd like to CSS my select menu  list. However the drupal common.inc
form_select() doesn't assign each  with a unique id/class.

the option list id's could be generated in the form:
<select-name>-<option value>

Which could produce something like:

  <select class="card" name="edit[card]" id="edit-card">
    <option value="" selected="selected">Please Choose</option>
    <option value="VISA" id="card-visa">Visa</option>
    <option value="MC" id="card-mc">Mastercard</option>
    <option value="SWITCH" id="card-switch">Switch</option>
    <option value="SOLO" id="card-solo">Solo</option>

The above would then allow individual styling to each  - in my case
displaying an image next to each option.
