 Per https://make.wordpress.org/core/2015/04/02/the-utf8mb4-upgrade/, we
 should consider switching our DB tables to use utf8mb4. Hopefully, we can
 re-use a lot of the new logic in WordPress 4.2 to make this easy.

 If we do this, we need to remember to check the size of the indexes. For
 example, WP's meta tables have a change, and our meta tables should
 probably be resized to keep things consistent.

 A notable consequence of this is that it would bump our minimum WordPress
 version up to 4.2.
