    Add fuzzy String matching logic to StringUtils

    Fuzzy algorithms are quite common nowadays with editors such as Sublime Text, TextMate,
Atom and others implementing a fuzzy matching algorithm. This PR adds a new string similarity
algorithm to StringUtils which behaves very similar to the ones used in the aforementioned
    An issue that needs to be mentioned is that this algorithm is not documented in form of
a paper to the best of my knowledge. For this reason different variations of this algorithm
may exist.
