Require a a minimum length in a string field?

I can -- and do -- require a certain text field to have a value and to be changed at a certain step in the workflow. But busy/lazy users can just type in a single character and move on. I would like to require that the text they enter be a minimum number of characters. Anyone have a way to do this?

Based on the comments above, I infer that there is no native way to achieve this validation.

You can do it with javascript or in validator using one of scripting plugins like jss, jjupin,..
