User Story

As a user, I want to be able to change my homescreen to an alternate one if more than one homescreen is available on my device so that I can pick a homescreen suited to me.

Acceptance Criteria:
1. I can see a list of available homescreens to choose from.
2. I am made aware which homescreen is currently in use.
3. I can choose a different homescreen than the one currently being used and the homescreen is updated to reflect my selection.
4. I switch from homescreen A to homescreen B.  I move apps within the B grid.  I return to homescreen A.  The position of apps within the homescreen A layout remains unchanged from the original position (ie. changes to B layout have no effect on A)
5. I switch from homescreen A to homescreen B.  I delete an app within B.  I return to homescreen A.  The app deleted in B is no longer available in A.
6. Home apps do not display within the task manager.
7. Mechanism to change homescreens matches UX spec.

Note: A mechanism already exists for this.  This bug is to clean up that implementation and bring it in line with a UX spec, to follow.
