Bug Description

It does a terrible job of informing user of what is to be removed.
Test case:
Open software-center, search webbrowser
Mark webbrowser-app for removal
S-c only reports 1 add. package to be removed (webapp-container

If one was to proceed then upon a log out/in or reboot they'd be sol as actually these are removed -
bamfdaemon
libunity-webapps0
ubuntu-desktop
unity
unity-webapps-common
unity-webapps-service
webapp-container
webbrowser-app
xul-ext-unity
xul-ext-websites-integration
