Add "mysqlbinlog --binlog-row-event-max-size" support

Description

This option was added in MySQL 5.6 as response to http://bugs.mysql.com/49932 "mysqlbinlog max_allowed_packet hard coded to 1GB"

Not really sure why Andrew thought it was needed as max_allowed_packet has an upper limit of 1GB anyway so mysqlbinlog should never run into problems with it, but I had a customer case where this came up, and maybe it would make sense to be able to run mysqlbinlog with lower max_allowed setting to verify that a slaves binlog-row-event-max-size would be large enough to process a masters logs ...

Or can row based replication binlog events indeed exceed 1GB?
