Feature Request: Option to display the filename at the top of the Viewer window

When I have several versions of a particular book and I'm looking to find the one with the best formatting and a thorough TOC, I have several instances of the Viewer open. However, they all display the title of the book at the top of the window, which I gather is extracted from the file's metadata. In these situations, it would be useful to associate a particular viewer instance with a particular filename so that I know which file to keep and which ones to discard.

Perhaps an option to display the filename? Or showing the filename when the mouse hovers over the title? Or perhaps, even, showing both the filename and the title?

Thank you for the great work you do, Kovid!

there is no way to specify tooltip for window titlebars and I'm afraid I am not interested in adding such an option as its not a common enough use case. You can already see the full path to the file by viewing the book metadata in the viewer controls. Right click->Go to->Metadata
