Fabric.js 2.0 breakWords Implementation

EDIT 8/26/2021 - The splitByGrapheme option seems to be working great in v4 and renders all of this shit unnecessary. Woohoo!

One of my favorite fabric.js hacks was the breakWords function . This would allow Textbox objects to hold a maximum width by forcing a line break when a long word could not be contained.

Note that there are still some problems as pointed out here . It's a start, though.
