One additional thought: We store packaging Vcs and upstream homepage

teach uscan to look there as well. Just a rough thought.
And do what with it? how will it know what it should look for? that's why
all that information is in and belongs to the watch files.
Why not teaching uscan reading uscan watch *and* control file. IMHO
the upstream VCS might be useful for other tools than uscan as well
and duplicating information is bad.
