Wrapping long pathnames in narrow fields

Setting the dontWrap to false allows a string to wrap at word breaks but
given that these may or may not exist in paths it's not particularly useful
here. So, yes I guess I'm looking for a 'wordWrap' type solution. I can
write one - I just thought there might be an existing and elegant solution
out there already.
