> WordUtils.wrap is good at what it does, but I want slightly different semantics. I would
like the option to set different characters for word breaking, not just space or whitespace,
but punctuation marks.
> The current implementation wraps like this:
> flammable/inflammable [original string]
> flammable/inflammable [wrap with large widths]
> flammable/inflammable [wrap with wrapLongWords = false]
> flammable/inflam           [wrap with wrapLongWords = true]
> mable
> I would like to configure wrap to break "flammable/inflammable" on punctuation marks
as well as whitespace, so that it wraps like this:
> flammable/                     [wrap with additionalBreakCharacters = "/+-"]
> inflammable
