DEP-8: Discovering autopkgtest-capable packages

DEP-8 currently appears to define no way to discover which packages
contain debian/tests/control files.  The only way to discover this is to
unpack the source package.

I think it would be helpful for this to be advertised as a bit in the
.dsc file, which would make it easy to scan for such packages in a
Sources file.  Perhaps something like "Autopkgtest: yes"?
