[Workbench] "Rename collection" button on project page is hidden/inaccessible if the current name is too long and the browser window is too narrow.

There isn't one obviously right way to fix this bug. The project contents tables have fixed layouts, meaning each td has
white-space: nowrap; overflow: hidden; set. And these tables just use
render_editable_attribute to render this name, meaning we can't change the layout of the name+pencil pair without far-reaching consequences. I have not found any way to say "If the contents of this box overflow, render this content at the end" in CSS.
Does this table need to have a fixed layout (i.e., each row is the same height)? Removing that constraint would make for the easiest, and most flexible fix. Judiciously adding s to the row contents would help prevent awkward wraps between buttons, etc.
If the table should have a fixed layout, then I think our next best option is to stop using the application-wide
table-fixedlayout class, and write more specialized CSS for these tables.
We could pass
render_editable_attribute the option to render the pencil on the left of the name instead of the right, but while that's very simple code-wise I think the UI inconsistency would be really jarring to users.
