webapp-container not installed by default - webapps fail to launch

Bug Description

webbrowser-app was recently split into two executables: /usr/bin/webbrowser-app is the actual browser application, and /usr/bin/webapp-container is the webapps container.

For backward compatibility, the browser application re-executes the webapp container in place if it detects an intent to launch a webapp.

This works nicely if the webapp container is present, but it appears we forgot to add it to the seed. As a consequence, all webapps fail to launch (only displaying a white screen with no indication of what happened).

Installing webapp-container solves the problem.

Not a bug in webbrowser-app itself.
This was fixed by adding webapp-container to the ubuntu-touch seed.
