Proposal: Please expose SNAP_TITLE (when available)

It is useful for scripts to display proper snap titles (instead of identifier names) without hardcoding it and allows them to be shared between snaps.

For example, the following message:

Hello.  In order to improve the user experience, the subsequent releases of the $SNAP_TITLE snap will be set in <i>classic confinement</i>, which means that the snap will now gain identical access as regular non-snap native applications.  For safety reasons the snap automatic upgrade process will not occur during this confinement switch and requires manual intervention.  Please run the following command in a terminal to do so:<br>
        <tt>    sudo snap refresh --classic $SNAP_NAME</tt>

For that particular scenario, snapd itself will be issuing a warning.
