The user's own review looks like somebody else's

Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

When I have reviewed a piece of software, my review appears in the list. Right now it looks like any other review. So, looking through the reviews I may come across my own. This feels like the following: “…and here's a review by some guy named Dylanmccall.” It feels like my computer doesn't know who I am, and it can be a little confusing.

Perhaps one's own rating and review could be de-emphasized and separated from the list of other peoples' reviews.

This is actually a little more work than I initially though:
- add self.proxy.find_credentials() call to (this ensures that credentials are only fetched if there is no login required)
- call "whoami()" in UbuntuSSOAPI get get username
- when building the reviews, compare username with the reviews.username and color the own ones differently.
