Double clicking a "for purchase" package in software-center attempts normal install instead of purchase

Bug Description

The new "for purchase" section behaves in the same way as the normal lists, where double clicking a package does the same thing as 'install'. However, as these new packages must be bought first, double clicking the package and having it attempt an install is wrong. For example, double clicking "Fluendo DVD Player" says "package fluendo-dvd not found" instead of opening the purchase dialog.
