Summary 0001629: [ENH][Small project] Improve the ChangeSorter

The title bar of an expanded CS is also not immediately updated.
I do not see an easy way to implement title update for both collapsed
and expanded windows. For expanded windows we can use the
stepping mechanism, bit I think that is not a very beautiful solution.

I added that to the changes menu. The new item is named
"change active change set..." It works both in a morphic environment
and in MVC.

This is easy!

"I suggest a little enhancement to the enhancement:
Get the updates out of the menu of possible change sets."

Tim Rowledge <>:

"Getting good; thanks much to both of you.

I'd suggest trying to make the menu roughly most-recent-first (since
those are likely the interesting ones).

I really don't think the window label needs to change to be the
currently selected changeset since it is pretty clear in the list view.
Having it be the _current_ name is surely more useful.

If the titlebar menu could be extended to include recent changesets we
wouldn't have to open the iconised sorter to change changesets, thus
saving many milliseconds."

I was able to load both changesets (seperately) into 3.8-6665-basic without errors but did not test further.
