How about preserving the old behavior for TextEntry and changing it
for InputField?

Even though I don't really like this idea, I can see the reasoning. I don't
think we have a reasonable other chance.

So now it's official: From yast2-core-2.16.14 on, input fields created as

`TextEntry() behave like `InputField(`opt(`hstretch))

(there will be a warning in the log once per program run).
I'd still like to encourage YCP module maintainers to make a conscious
decision which behaviour is desired and use

`InputField() for fields with a reasonable default size and

`InputField(`opt(`hstretch) for fields that stretch as wide as they can.
