 The speed difference for non-innodb setups between `text` and `varchar`
 may make this worth reverting. Can we get some benchmarks to ensure this
 is the best approach?

 For installations where upper Unicode characters are common, switching to
 utf8mb4(_unicode_ci) and/or a larger varchar may be faster.

 Also, it can be a slippery slope to cherry-pick what columns we change to
 support Unicode, and I suspect there are a few more places this will occur
 that should be checked into.
