Re: [Denemo-devel] Lyimport filename

I have changed my mind in regards of "untitled". It should be a new tab, 
unsaved file with the name of the imported one without the file suffix. 
Reason: An additional step is to support the opening of multiple files. The 
goal after that is batch apply a scipt to all files. Then you want more 
information than "untitled". Imagine 100 untitled open tabs with music 
previously unknown to you...
