if i save a session with the hostname "" and the user "root", it will add a default name in the save field as: ""

this is quite unhandy if you have multiple servers with root users and a different user, in the session list the will get sorted like:

so they are not sorted by server but by username.

i always rename the session like this:
Code: root username

so everything is sorted by server

would it be possible to:
- add my pattern (#hostname: #username) to switch per checkbox (defaultSessionName=0/1 in the ini file)
- allow a custom pattern to be defined in the ini file (defaultSessionName="--#hostname: || #username--"
