We currently don't provide a session name when logging in to a Matrix account. We should provide a Session name like "Thunderbird" and potentially give the user to override it, similar to XMPP Resources.

I think that Element (or maybe it was Riot) used to do this and stopped. I'm not sure why?

Some of the clients used to include device information, like hostname or similar. The session name is public, especially for encryption verification purposes.

Also disables the SDK from setting the presence whenever it's syncing.
