Support for meeting passwords.

Typo fixes.
Shorten database fields that are longer than WebEx allows.

Current Limitations
As this software is in beta, you should see the Limitations and Bugs list at:

Known limitations:
- Backup and restore does not work.
- When a Moodle user is used to create or host a meeting, a new WebEx user is created for them, with the prefix setting prepended to the username. If the email address is already taken, the user will be redirected to a field to enter their WebEx password. A workaround for this is to change the users existing email address in WebEx from something like user1@example.com to user1+webex@example.com. Everything between the + and the @ is ignored by email systems.
- Only Meeting Center and Training Center are currently supported.
