Bug Description

At the moment when a user installs an application directly for a Dash preview, if the Software Centre is not running it is launched and the Software Centre window is opened. This is incorrect, installing applications direct from the Dash shouldn't involve the Software Centre *user interface* in any way.

-----------------------------------------
Desired Resolution:

- When an application is installed direct from a Dash Preview, no part of this interaction should involve the Software Centre user interface.

Problem caused by a new bug in Software Center d-bus data provider process which returns price='None' for free apps (a bug in serialization in python code) to unity-lens-applications, so the app is treated as a commercial one and that involves installation via Software Center. Needs to be fixed in Software Center d-bus data provider.

After some discussions IRC it was decided that unity-application-lens should rely on raw_price property rather than price, as price will contain a localized price string and localized 'Free' string for free apps.
