So having done #5, and working on #4, I'm starting to come up with a
bunch of methods that might make sense on CharSequenceUtils.

Basically it's a set of methods on java.lang.String that are being
implemented to support CharSequence. The first step is to check if the
CharSequence is a String; if so then optimize and use the
java.lang.String code. Otherwise use a basic implementation built on
top of the CharSequence API. They're currently living at the end of
the StringUtils class, but I'm leaning towards making them their own
class. CharSequenceUtils, or is there a better name?

I'd also appreciate feedback on the current changes in case it's felt
I'm reaching too much to support CharSequence as an API; I'm 20 of 76
unique method names along :)
