Improve Active-Deploy deployment labling

When specifying a custom label for a deployment in active-deploy, the label cannot be found in the active-deploy-list. Using the deployment id is required to retreive the label with active-deploy-show.
I suggest to generate a label by default, that can be substituted manually and display the label in the active-deploy-list command instead of the id.

    This is an excellent suggestion and in fact has already been done.

    Run these command to re-install the Active Deploy plugin:
    cf uninstall-plugin active-deploy
    cf install-plugin active-deploy -r bluemix

    Then when you run this command: cf active-deploy-list

    it will show you the updated LABEL field:

    label id status start group ...
    UPDATE2 8d8aaec2-dd02-49c0-9286-be78282a6a8d paused app3 app (4) ...
    UPDATE1 c784dc26-7e3d-45ee-91d9-00ac39eb15ea completed app1 app (1) ...

    Any questions or additional requests for this, please contact me
