[Kst] Modification of the label in command line mode

Hey Maxime,

If you have an ascii data file like this: (notice that the first row is the
field name, without spaces)

Temperature Pressure SomeThingElse
12 55 18
13 23 100
99 3 22

... and if you configure the ascii file appropriately (press the configure
button where you put in the file name in the GUI) then kst will use the
first row as the field name, and that name will show up in the axis labels

You can make these changes default, so that plots made from the command
line will pick this up.
