Database: Increase the size of wp_posts.post_password to 255 characters.

Longer passwords and passphrases are much more common than when post passwords were introduced all those eons ago, so let's increase the length of the post_password field from 20 to 255 characters.

The password will continue to be stored in plaintext, as the ability for the post author to view the password is a commonly used feature.

Trivia: this was the last 3 digit Trac ticket to be closed.

Props skippy, nazgul, iandunn, adamsilverstein, pento.
Fixes #881.
