I am not sure if I like this patch, there are many reasons:

  1. Setting the title of the terminal can be done with an escape
     sequence.  Just like with any other terminal application.

  2. If we are going to support a GUI way of setting the terminal
     name, then it needs to go in the properties, so that the setting
     can be kept across sessions.
