[fingerprints] Make them nameable

It would be helpful to be able to rename saved fingerprints. Right now one has to remember exactly in which order fingers were scanned as they'll get generically named fingerprint 1, fingerprint 2, etc.
It can get quite tedious when one wants to rescann a particular finger. If the original order is lost you can either guess or have to delete all saved prints to avoid double scanning and wasting one fp slot

Update: Manual hack

You can name the fingerprints by filling out the empty string for the name value in
/usr/share/lipstick/devicelock/sailfish-fpd/fingers.json. You will have to know which is which though, as they are numbered chronologically.
After a system restart, the new labels will show up in the settings.

"fingers": [  
        {  
            "date": "YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSZ",  
            "id": "finger1",  
            "name": "INSERT LABEL HERE"  
        },
 ]
