Start treating YAML "title" field as one of aliases

Use cases:

  • Use existing databases with specified titles effectively, eliminate the need to [duplicate title into aliases field and then maintain them in sync].
  • This feature would be simple initial step towards support for vaults with UID based filenames (Zettelkasten).

Proposed solution:

Add option to treat YAML “title” field as one of aliases.
i.e. when the option is toggled ON in settings (or in some config file) for given vault, then return title as match in auto-completion during linking and in “Quick Switcher”.
(Another solution is to have it enabled permanently without option, if there is not any case where it would cause problems.)

Current workaround:

Spend time by adding/maintaining each title redundantly in “aliases” field.
