Adjusting field size

Is it possible to control the field length of, for example, text fields?

It appears the default is to create a varchar(256) in the database. Is there a way, in contenttypes or elsewhere, to change this? I don't need or necessarily want want all text fields to have the huge limit that textareas have, but more than 256 would be immensely helpful. If this isn't easily achieved, how difficult is it to create new field types?
