Bug Description

As any other application, after being installed, the icon should stay in the Launcher also after quitting. The tile should go away from the Launcher only after the user unlocks it and quits the web app.

To reproduce:

1. visit news.bbc.co.uk (or the address of any other uninstalled webapp) in Firefox

2. In the popup message that appears in the browser window underneath the URL bar, select the "Yes, you would like to integrate..." option

3. Close the browser window.

What currently incorrectly happens: the Launcher icon disappears.

Correct desired behaviour: The icon should remain pinned to the launcher like all other newly installed applications.

This is a bit difficult to close at this point

We have a libunity-webapps branch to manually modify the unity favorites gsettings key. It's a little prone to failure though espescially if unity/libunity-webapps get out of sync or the user manually modifies dconf key. Nervous about committing it at this point.

We need DBus API in Unity (similar to the software center API)
