WP8 Export: App title not carrying over to WP8

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

Link to .capx file (required!):
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/554309/NewEmptyProject.capx (This is just a new empty project)

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create new empty project
2. Export to Windows Phone 8
3. In the exported project, open Properties\WMAppManifest.xml

Observed result:
In C2, my project properties title was "New project". If a user were to publish this app without changing anything, then their user-facing title would have been changed to "NewProject", aka your `[[[shortname]]]`.

Expected result:
I would expect that the title I set in C2 be carried over to WMAppManifest.xml in the parts that were end-user-facing.

I would like to propose that two places be changed in WMAppManifest.xml:
1. In the "App" tag, on the "Title" attribute.
2. In the "TemplateFlip" tag, in the "Title" tag.

Browsers affected:
Chrome: n/a
Firefox: n/a
Internet Explorer: n/a

Operating system & service pack:
Windows 8.1 Enterprise, 64-bit

Construct 2 version:
Tested with r154, r155, r156

Thank you for all your hard work,
- Dan -

ps - As I use the C2\exporters\html5\metro\package.appxmanifest as a guide, would this bug be as simple as replacing `[[[shortname]]]` with `[[[displayname]]]` or `[[[appdisplayname]]]`? Or, are there any other hidden complexities that I'm not seeing?
