Add session or profile name to signon to IBM i window title

It would be useful if there was a way to tailor or add the session/profile name to the window title of the 'Signon to IBM i' prompt window. When using a password manager such as KeePass to manage passwords, such a product would need to distinguish which system it was to supply logon credential for.

Use Case:

I have many systems/LPARs defined to my IBM i Access Client Solutions sessions. In order to keep them all straight, our company uses a password manager KeePass to store and encrypt passwords. KeePass has the ability to fill in the correct logon credential if it can match the name of the signon window with a password entry in its database. This process does not work with IBM i Access Client Solutions because regardless of what system/session you are accessing, the window title is always 'Signon to IBM i' If users were able to tailor the window title of the signon window like they are able to tailor the title of the main emulator window, password managers such as KeePass would be able to supply correct logon credentials for any session that is defined to it.

    A work around may be to look at the specific command string to open a session and use that within the Keepass entry to start it.
