[RndTbl] Fw: [Bug 740188] the --title option is nonfunctional

Here's a great example of the snootiness, and complete lack of "getting
it", of Gnome/systemd people, and why so many people are at odds with
them.  Tons of people commented on this bug: how asinine it was that
--title was removed.  The workarounds are ok if you're interactive *in*
the window, but what if you want to launch a bunch of windows from a
script, and have each one named?

Who are the people being l33t here???

At least (for the first time I can remember when watching the dealings
of these people), the "old fart" "unix admins" get their way.

    client: legacy: Reimplement deprecated --title option

    This reverts commit 0033eca2909ddccf3358c1f089bce05d3473b123.

    Reimplement the deprecated --title client option. It seems it is
    absolutely required by all those super l33t unix admins that are
    above using a lowly command like printf(1) or the even simpler
