Improve window titles for multi-file datasets

Right now, if we open a multi-file dataset in ImageJ, the window title is set to the primary file in the dataset; e.g. if we open ome-tiff/tubhiswtTEST/time-series/tubhiswt_C1.tiff, the title is "tubhiswt_C1.tiff", but we are actually reading tubhiswt_C1.tiff and tubhiswt_C2.tiff. Ideally, the title would be tubhiswt_C<1-2>.tiff.

For formats that have both pixels and metadata files (Leica LEI, PerkinElmer, ...), we may want to do something slightly different:

  1. use the dataset name, or
  2. "$primaryFile ($num pixels files)"

Personally, I would prefer option #2, as it indicates that we are reading all files in the dataset.

r3373; multi-file formats will continue to use the primary file's name.
