Bug#499564: Use src:foopkg for specifing that a bug is assigned to a source package

Package: debbugs

13:54:51 <dondelelcaro> anyway, filing bugs on the source packages
		        causes some odd effects when there isn't a
		        binary package of the same name
13:55:27 <dondelelcaro> that's a bug in my opinion, but it's so tied
		        into debbug's architecture that I haven't
		        thought of a brilliant way to solve it
13:56:39 <dondelelcaro> : isn't valid in package names, right?
13:57:35 <Myon> Package names must consist only of lower case letters
	        (`a-z'), digits (`0-9'), plus (`+') and minus (`-')
                signs, and periods (`.').
13:57:46 <dondelelcaro> ok... that may be the way out, then
13:58:59 <dondelelcaro> I may change it so that you specify the source
		        package using Package: src:libgnomeprintui (or
		        Package: source:libgnomeprintui) which will
                        resolve these problems, and also handle the
                        stupid case of Package: foo Source: bar,
                        Package: bar Source: foo
14:00:21 <dondelelcaro> (filing a bug with Source: bar will
		        automatically make it a bug against Package:
		        src:bar (as far as the bts is concerned),
		        which with a bit of
                        hackery will "just work"

Miracles had become relative common-places since the advent of
entheogens; it now took very unusual circumstances to attract public
attention to sightings of supernatural entities. The latest miracle
had raised the ante on the supernatural: the Virgin Mary had
manifested herself to two children, a dog, and a Public Telepresence
