And I'm not really keen on recognizing more Vcs-* fields in debian/control
as far as dpkg-dev is concerned.

There are lots of upstream-metadata that we might want to have available
and we need to find a proper solution that doesn't involve debian/control.

It should be outside of the package and probably shared accross
all Linux distributions. It seems to me to be a good extension of the work
done/planned on the cross-distribution app-store.
