Well, if you want to split hairs...
function longer_slogan_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state, $form_id) {
  switch ($form_id) {
    case 'system_site_information_settings':
      $form['site_slogan']['#type'] = 'textarea';
      $form['site_slogan']['#rows'] = 1;
      $form['site_slogan']['#maxlength'] = 256;
  return $form;

function longer_slogan_uninstall() {
  $slogan = variable_get('site_slogan', '');
  if (drupal_strlen($slogan) > 128) {
    drupal_set_message(t('The current slogan exceeds the default maximum
length (128). It will continue to work, but the Site Information form will
fail if edited.'), 'error');

I would be happy if core just changed the 128 default to 256. And yes, I
will be submitting a patch for D8.

function custom_form_system_site_information_settings_alter(&$form) {
  $form['site_slogan']['#type'] = 'textarea';

3 lines, actually.

I'd say that this is even too specific for Util.  Luckily, D7 will allow you
to put this code into your theme, so you don't even need a custom.module.
