Add "Title" field for simplified grid node management and identification

As a NCrunch user, I would like to have an easy way to identify and manage my grid node while using distributing processing window.

Currently, "server name" field is the only way to identify remote servers. With automated, disposable, DevOps-iified infrastructure, such identification is highly desiured. Out server names are random strings, such as this:

MB-{RANDOM-8-CHARS}

* MB-DMHJBDTDD
* MB-THDRFBDF
* MB-MKDHSVTD

We don't really care or have control over this while scaling grid nodes infrastructure.

It would be nice to have an additional field "Title" or "Display Title" for grid node so that we can have a human-readable name for randomly generated server name while registering it in VS.

    This feature does already exist, but it is controlled on the grid node itself (not the client).

    To make use of it, you need to use the Grid node configuration tool (NCrunch.GridNode.Configuration.exe) and assign a Node Id (Name) to the grid node. If no value is specified for this field, the grid node will use its network name instead (which is what you're seeing right now).
