Feature request: allow control of the amount of context when long strings are printed

When a string is printed that is longer then *print-string-length*, the amount of context that is printed is currently hard-coded at 12 characters from the beginning of the string and 6 at the end. (This code is at the end of write-an-array in l1-io.lisp.) It would be nice if the user had control over the amount of context. There's a common use case where you're printing HTML pages and you don't want the whole thing because it's too long, but 12 characters is not enough to tell which page you're looking at.
