Bug description:
  Uninstalled webapps don't appear in the Dash Apps Lens

  Because WebApps don't need to be 'installed' in the traditional sense,
  and they are very lightweight, we would like to ship 13.04 with all
  WebApps installed by default.

  This will solve the problem of WebApps not appearing in the Dash Apps

  We will still need the WebApps 'discovery' popup that appears under
  the URL bar in the Firefox and Chromium browsers.  However we will
  need to change the text to say:

  "This website is available as an Ubuntu webapp.  Would you like to pin
  it's icon to the Launcher?"

  The default button text should change to "Pin to Launcher", with a
  secondary option of "No thanks!"

  This change mirrors the work we are doing with the Smart Scopes
  project where all of the available scopes will be installed by
