Column Formatting String Operations

Add additional string options to Declarative Customization Column Formatting. Specfically:

Unary Operations:
length
toLowerCase()
toUpperCase()
trim

Binary Operations:
indexOf
lastIndexOf
endsWith
startsWith

Additional Operations:
replace
substring
padStart
padEnd

The order of operands, the return value, and the functionality would all match their JavaScript equivalents.

Having these would greatly increase the power of Column Formatting both in terms of string formatting but also with powerful conditional formatting. Without these basic operations, Column Formatting is still pretty limited.
