(was: Thanks Henri. i added the new test case to the junit test case assertEquals("ab.ef",
StringUtils.truncateMiddle("abcdef", ".", 5));
The result of StringUtils.truncateMiddle("abcdef", ".", 5) is ab.ef.

i am attaching the updated patch.)

> It would be handy to have a String method that cuts out the middle part of a String such
that as much as possible is kept from the start and end of the String, but the middle part
is replaced by an ellipsis "..."
> BeOS had a function like this, but it's poorly documented, missing examples:
> e.g.:
> A very long text with unimportant stuff in the middle but interesting start and end to
see if the text is complete.
> becomes:
> A very long see if the text is complete.
