The introduction of HG2 has removed an (undocumented) feature of legends - the ability to easily add titles to them.
This function is to replace/replicate that behaviour.
The function works on both HG1 and HG2.
hTitle = legendTitle ( hLegend, 'your title string' );
The function accepts arg pairs to format/customise the legend.
Function has listeners for the legend changing "Location", "Position" and being Deleted. A listener is also added to the parent figure when it changes size.

thanks, does work in R2015b
Works better than submission #4561 (legendtitle), specially after saving figure as a png file. (You might wish to "acknowledge" that submission so that it links back to the present one.)
Update to link other pre-HG2 FEX to help users find this submission
Fix bug in the test script.
