truncate should always return unsafe strings

Reported by Michael Koziarski | June 16th, 2010 @ 10:25 PM | in 3.0.2

As mentioned in #4825 the change to using santize in truncate has broken some valid use cases. e.g. descriptions such as:

  <script> tags not working in admin section

Instead the helper should simply return the strings as unsafe, and let the user either mark them as raw() or rely on the default escaping.

We can't use the html_safety of the input to determine whether to return a safe string because of cases like this:

  <%= truncate(h("wtf&"), 4) %>
