That could be added if wanted. Something similar to the syntax variable 
interpolation function could be used to find % or ${} sequences and replace 
them with text. What else would you want besides filename and pwd? Username? 

Might be more useful if nano's titlebar could also be customized with the same 
code, but with a separate option string.

New patch uses the same path string displayed on nano's titlebar and only sends 
the titlebar sequence if DISPLAY is set.
