That's great!
Now we need a syntax to tuck it into Vcs-Git: in control files.

Does Vcs-Foo accept unescaped spaces in the URLs?  If not, we may make it
Vcs-Git: git://foo.bar.org/meow debian

Being unable to represent that in a sane way, I skipped that field, which
already made one person waste his time (sorry, adsb!) reading an
unstructured diff.
