^ screenshot of the pannel; Screen 1, Screen 2, Screen 3

On a multi monitor setup, it's super difficult to identify the monitors in Settings → Configure Krita → Color management → Display. I have three monitors connected (one being the Cintiq13HD) and they all list this way:
Screen 1 [    profile.icc    ]
Screen 2 [    profile.icc    ]
Screen 3 [    profile.icc    ]

My wish:
Getting an extra hint under "Screen" to identify the monitors on this interface. (eg. can be the geometry@position: eg. 1920x1080@0,0 and 1440x900@1920,0, or device name). Thank you!

My workaround:
Opening a picture I know very well for the colors, taking a *.icc in the list with a dramatic different aspect (eg. ClayRGB) and apply it to a single entry (eg. Screen 2). Move the Krita windows on all monitor and note on paper the monitor target. On my setup: Screen 1 = my main. Screen 2 = Cintiq . Screen 3 = my second monitor. On xRandr listing appearance: 1 = my second monitor, 2 = My main monitor, 3 = Cintiq. So, this workaround is necessary.

Fix color profiles being assigned to screens by indexes

Before this commit, Krita assigned color profiles to screens
based on screen indexes, which apparently can change
(see the bug report). This commit introduces "screen string
identifier" which is a concatenation of multiple screen
properties like manufacturer, serial number, resolution etc.
(Note that especially on Windows, any of those
properties might be empty strings).
