[BZ#616133] Notebook labels could ellipsize better

Hi, meld is the only program I've used where each tab in the notebook represents TWO open files. It's good that you use "*" to indicate when each one has been modified but ellipsizing the label when it gets too long causes a problem. Seeing what file has been modified is important information but "..." often gets in the way of the first file making me stop and look at the tooltip.
I just turned off ellipsizing because I will most likely never need it but there are various fixes I suppose. Packing TWO different label boxes in each tab and telling each one to ellipsize by itself? Or setting the label to show the names of both files and then one of " ", " ", " " or "**" depending on which ones are modified? I don't know. I just think leaving it how it is would be ugly. Thanks.
