Widget titles and text lack filtering

As of the 2.5 release, there is currently no way for a plugin to filter widget titles (for the widgets supplied with WordPress in wp-includes/widget.php). The patch I am about to attach adds filters to all built-in widget titles. This is primarily useful for multi-lingual blogs.

I realize that for most widgets, if you leave the title attribute blank, you will at least get an internationalized string for the title, but that doesn't give the user the option to override the title.

Patch coming shortly; patch was tested in 2.6 bleeding [7640].

Patch is there. Also note that the Text Widget really needs this, since there is no default title for that widget -- it's all user-supplied. The others I would consider to be a nice enhancement.
