Launchpad "display name" and "name" confusion in reviewing process

Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

When writing a review, user's Launchpad "display name" is used in the reviewing gui (e.g. "Mark Shuttleworth").
Then, in the published review, USC shows the Launchpad "name" (e.g. "sabdfl").
The "display name" should be used for both.

Branch attached has a fix that will display the user's display name for reviews in the app details screen instead of their username (will only work for reviews that were submitted to the server after the server begins supporting the display name being recorded, otherwise it will revert to the username as per current)
