Enhance UCD so that artifact retention settings from an env template can be overwritten in an env based on that template

In UCD we set a reasonable system wide retention policy for component artifact versions. We also take full advantage of component, application, env, and resource templates. We need the ability to overwrite those retention settings set in the templates for individual one offs based on those templates. This is possible with components. Components created based on a template allow these settings to be overwritten. Env's though based on env templates, those settings are greyed out and you are not able to overwrite those settings nor are you able to not set those settings in a env template. We would like for there to be consistency within the product so that these settings are allowed to be overwritten both in components and env's.
