We are sure that it is a good ideea to increase the size on the column to such a big value for settings table that is very used? Maybe some plugin developers should store these kind of settings in their own table.

I would like to have more feedback on this before committing.

Currently, both PostgreSQL and SQLite allow 1GB of text. 64 KB for MySQL is quite small compared to those, so I think the upper limit could be increased.

This difference may cause a problem that a plugin works with PostgreSQL and SQLite but does not work with MySQL.

I don't want to be against of this change, I just wanted to point my concern.
