#1155: Platform and Architecture Fields in AppCafe are Confusing

 This appears in the Installed tab (Architecture column) and Browse for
 Apps tab (Platform).

 These fields display as "freebsd:10:x86:64" which is confusing. Am I
 getting a 32-bit app or a 64-bit app? Do I care, seeing that PC-BSD is
 64-bit only and will do the "right thing" if an app is only available as a
 32-bit version?

 My suggestion would be to hide these two fields for now as there may be a
 case in the future where having the architecture/platform makes sense.
