String size limit too low for model instances in databrowse

The databrowse app imposes a hard-coded size limit of 30 characters on the string representations of model instances. This can cause problems if you have a model with __unicode__ method that creates lengthy strings.

The attached patch raises the limit to 100 characters. It also makes this value a module-level constant called STRING_SIZE_LIMIT, to improve code clarity.
