Default Reascript: Track/TakeFX_SetFXName to rename FX

The lack of Track/TakeFX_SetFXName has been discussed in multiple threads, but I couldn't find a proper Feature Request, so here it is.

As present, the only way to change an FX name is to parse and edit the track/take chunk.

Rename effects selected in the chain with lua script - HOW?
Rename FX instance ?
Rename FX via reascript?

+1 to Track/TakeFX_SetFXName

That would obviously be cleaner and novice-friendlier than editing chunks.

Yes, there is a lack of such a function, it would be great to see one.

And it is better to see something like this. One returns all data about past Fx, and the second sets part of this data.

Code:
is_offline(missing data flags), is_bypassed, is_instrument(bridge flag), absolute_path, is_show (fx chain flags), is_selected, defaultName, customName = TrackFX_GetFXInfo(track, fx_idx)
TrackFX_SetFXInfo(track, fx_idx,bool offline,bool bypassed,flags show,bool selected,str set_customName);
And TakeFX...(...) accordingly
