Add "title" attr to emojis

See original GitHub issue

Sometimes I have absolutely no idea what an emoji is that someone has used. The markup GitHub uses when rendering emojis is:

<g-emoji alias="cat" fallback-src="">🐱</g-emoji>

It would be nice to be able to hover on the icon to actually see what it’s name is. This would just involve copying the alias value to title.

Any objections?

@lukaszklis I think we should at least have the title attribute before anything else as it’s quite annoying. This is what the original issue is about.

@sindresorhus could you clarify what you mean? Perhaps revert the whole <g-emoji> and in practice force the fallback?

@jacobbearden It seems on Ubuntu the fallback-src is transferred to an <img> element with a title. Probably the raw emoji there is not supported.
