Size limit for labels and descriptions

Currently, labels can be created 800kb long and same with descriptions.

The labels and descriptions are used in places like the recent changes page and article history, and such lengthy stuff can make stuff time out when trying to view it on the wiki.

bzimport set Reference to bz43278.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

The terms table are limited anyhow, but I'm not sure if we should copy this value as the terms table is used mainly for lookup. We could warn the user if the length goes above this value, like the warnings while someone is uploading an image.
