Description of problem:
There was a bug filed by Jay Turner (bug 135379) about removing the
epoch from the filename on a package details page.

This bug is fixed, but in testing it I noticed that we display the
epoch on the "packages by name" page


We should be consistent and remove it from there too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
-68 ISO for rhn 360

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. search for a package, like mozilla in the search bar on top
2. click the package name in the first results page
3. on the "packages by name" page you will see the issue.

Jay's issue was a true *bug* in that we were guestimating the filename
from back before we had good schema for it in all cases.

I do not believe that showing the epoch is the wrong thing to do the
package search case.  Usually, it doesn't show up.  Sometimes, it
matters though, particularly in channel management, when epoch can be
the mitigating factor in uniqueness.

In general, I am of the opinion that RHN should display NVRE/NVREA
wherever possible to eliminate confusion.
