#16492: Improvements to the Wordpress Update Process

 I've some suggestions on how to improve the update process (usability). I
 guess its not enough for separate tickets so I'm filing them together.

  * When updating Wordpress, a plugin or a theme, I'm being asked for the
 password to the FTP server. You should add a note there that the password
 won't be stored in the database. I guess many/some users are uncomfortable
 with storing their FTP password in the database and won't use the "update
 tool" for this reason.
  * Rename the button "Update Automatically" to "Update Wordpress". "Update
 Automatically" sound like "Update now and update automatically in the
 future when a new Wordpress (and also plugin/theme?) version is
 available." This should make the button's function a little bit clearer.
