Use unique Thread names among connections

Description

PacketReader creates 2 threads in the constructor with a static name so the name will be the same if we have many readers for many connections.

PacketWriter creats 3 threads in the constructor. Two of them have a static name whilst the last thread has no name.

When creating the threads, we don't yet have the username of the user that's logging in. We also don't have the connection ID from the server. Therefore, I created a new connection counter in XMPPConnection. All threads that get created then use a unique ID for the connection. Nice things about this value:

  • You can easily tell which threads are older than others by looking at the number.

  • The number stays consistent between connects and disconnects to the server (this could be a good or bad thing).
