Bug#511522: general: Man pages should say what package a program belongs to

Package: general
Severity: wishlist

If some program belongs to a package which does not have the same name 
as the program, the man page for that command should say which package 
the program is part of.
This is not the case in, for instance, coreutils or util-linux.
This information is needed, even for packages that are always installed 
as part of the base distribution, since to get source code for a program 
in coreutils one needs to know that it is part of that package.
