> Please consider adding the following method to org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils. I've
submitted the method, with test cases below (rather than create a patch file). As a single
method, it should prove very simple to integrate. 
> The method returns the path to a file, from another file, as described in the Javadoc
method header below: 
>     /**
>      * Returns the path of a aFile relative to another aFile, for example the location
of a file: 
>      * <code>resources/language/english/foobar.properties</code> relative
to
>      * <code>resources/language/japanese/foobar.properties</code> is
>      * <code>../../english/foobar.properties</code>
>      *
>      * @param aFile           the aFile to check relative location
>      * @param fromAnotherFile the base location
>      * @return the relative location path
>      * @throws java.io.IOException on IO error
