Bug Description

Currently lenses are ordered by their directory name in /usr/share/unity/lenses/ (with the exception of those who's order is specified in dconf).

This causes breaks when installing lenses from extras.ubuntu.com, because the are required to prefix their directory with 'extras-' to avoid file conflicts with packages in main/universe. Because they all start with 'extras-', they are all grouped together in the LensBar.

Instead, the order of lenses should be determined by their defined name in their .lens file, which doesn't have the 'extras-' namespacing requirement.
