Plugin Directory: Add 'My Favorites' section to the front page if the user is logged in and has favorites.

Fixes #2156.

In keeping with the format of the front page, 'My Favorites' was added as a section alongside 'Featured', 'Popular', and 'Beta', and also with a link to the favorites view from there.

@coffee2code Wouldn't it be better for discoverability if the link was there regardless of you having favorites or not? (like it is in the old plugin directory)
I was logged in, but I don't have favorites, so I didn't see any link. I didn't really know about Favorites until I saw that link in the old directory.

I don't think that would be better. We should expose it for users with favorites on the homepage, but shouldn't expose it for other users. They'll see it on all the sub-pages and can learn more about it.

I can see why you'd say that because of the way the sections are displayed on the home page of the new version (which I argued against). But it really is a hidden feature. I only noticed it because I was comparing the old to the new, and I've been around awhile. When I'm searching for plugins, I'm not usually logged in. At least with the old, the word Favorite is next to the heart icon. I'm not sure where they'll "learn more about it" on the new version.
