Wow!, that was fast, thanks!!

Can you please give us some details? Some questions follow ...
- if I got this correctly it means that I can start adding 'Homepage'
  fields (no heading 'X', no fake fields in description) to my
  debian/controls, right?
- should the field be put in the source stanza of debian/control or in
  the various binary stanzas?
- probably not dpkg's business, but will the field flow to the Packages
  files of the archive? What about the Sources?
