Target release:
Due to the URL the google_maps_js function returns, any rendered map using Google Maps will produce a message about the API key being incorrect. This is because the returned value already has ampersands encoded as &. When rendered, the '&' becomes '&', resulting in no key value actually being sent.

Implementing this change fixes the problem:
