Include Workflow Name As Part Of yxdb metadata

When using the output data tool, it would save me and my cluttered organizational skills a lot of effort if the writing workflow was saved as part of the yxdb metadata. 

I've often had to search to find a workflow which created the yxdb. I tend to use naming conventions to help me,  but it would be easier if the file and or path was easily found.

This would be really useful!

And given that Alteryx also own the YXDB format, hopefully this should be achievable too.

Would also be good if the username of the person who ran the workflow was there. Is there any metadata we can access for yxdb files?
