Using name alias in SourceTree

Is there any way to add name alias that will be displayed in SourceTree UI instead of the folder name in which the repository resides? I am using the same structure for my projects (as many do) and the folder name is in most cases the same. Currently, I don't see any way to enforce a clearly visible distinction between the tabs corresponding to the currently opened repositories. There could be an element in the sourcetreeconfig file(s) that could be used for this.

No, currently you can name folders and bookmarks, but no additional alias.

Ok, got that. Is there any plan for something similar? If not, could you add it to the feature requests?
