[applet] When only showing friendly name, add full name on hover

Nate Graham requested to merge ngraham/plasma-pa:show-full-name-on-hover into master

The applet has a special mode where it only shows a user-friendly name (e.g. "Speakers" and "Microphone") when there is only one device, on the logic that the full name is not needed when there is only one device because the user knows what it is, and also depending on the audio drivers in use, it can be a rather unsightly text string.

However there may be times when the user actually wants to know the full name; perhaps they have forgotten which device of many they regularly use is currently connected, for example. For this case, we now display the full name on hover, so it's not getting in the way and possibly looking ugly until it's actually needed.
