43 - Permanent Name and Icon for Bars when using multi-proc items (DBW)

I use Deathbringer's Will, a trinket which can proc three different spells.
I know I can track all those with commas but the problem is, that it shows the different spell names and icons. Would it be possible to set a fix icon and name for the bars?

    3.1.7: The override can now support a comma-separated list just like the list of spells to watch

    An introductory version of this is availiable in 3.1.6. However, it has been suggested that the override name have the same comma-delimited powers that the "aura to watch" has, so that if the second item in the list is what triggered the bar to become active, then the second override (if present) will be used. I like this suggestion, so am leaving this ticket open.

    As posted elsewhere, this feature would also allow "Tricks of the Trade" to become "ToT" saving screen space. While box-sizing allows for truncation, for those who use NTK as a buff tracker it would allow "Greater Blessing of Kings" and "Greater Blessing of Might" to become just Kings and Might, still distinguishable, yet saving 20 characters.

    I was going to make it a universal feature, yeah. I was going to make it another menu option in the bottom half of the menu (the appearance section) and reuse the existing dialog, since I can hook that up pretty easily

    What about making the override bar name a feature for all bars? Like a user could make a bar watching "Sunder Armor, Expose Armor" and have the bar only read "Major Armor Debuff".

    The dialog box where you put in the name of the buff/debuff could have an extra input field labelled "Text to display (leave blank to show buff/debuff name)". If Blizz doesn't have a template for that, we'd have to make our own. The most intuitive variable name for this would be something like DisplayText.

    1/5 15:55:46.001 UNIT_DIED, 0x0000000000000000, nil, 0x80000000, 0xF130001942161FB7, "Gamon", 0xa28

    I wanted to do this as part of the "sum all stacks" feature, but decided to releasing something was better than nothing. That ups the priority of this feature, though

    I think I'm going to leave the icon alone for now, but will add an override for bar name
