Kibana4: Set label text for Metric Visualisation

Hi there

I am coming from Kibana 3 and trying to find my way around Kibana 4. How do I change the default label text for the Metric visualisation. It always seems to use the aggregation type concatenated with the selected fields name, which is not always perfect for human-readability.

You cannot do that at the moment, I can't seem to see a request for this either so please feel free to raise one -

There is a pull request with this feature waiting for review at:

This would be extremely useful. Also would be handy to also disable all the surrounding things when you do visualise it as well, like the ability to view as table etc.
