If I'm not mistaken, this patch will truncate the end of the string and add the
ellipsis (...) to the end.  I think it is much better to add that to the
beginning, or the middle.

I'm not sure how the string is formatted, but for a URL it is generally the end
that is most specific, not the beginning, so perserving the beginning and
truncating the end is a mistake, IMO.

Would it be better to add the '...' to the beginning of the string?
