A way to change the title of PHPStorm


I want to write a simple plugin which changes the title of PHPStorm. I need to work on a few customer websites which all have an unique ID.
The ID is displayed in the Title "ID - [Path] - PHPStorm 7.0". I want to make a request to our database to display the name of the customer so it's easier to decide on which page you are currently working on when you have a few PHPStorm instances running.

Is there a simple way to do this? I guess there is some kind of "onProjectOpened" event which I could hook on to.

Thanks in advance!

There's internal class com.intellij.openapi.wm.impl.FrameTitleBuilder, but implementation is "hardcoded" into IDE and would need to be overridden by nasty hacks. Feel free to file an RFE for having a 3rd-party extension point.
