You can start without patching dpkg:

  Package: foo
  XB-Homepage: http://www.foo.org

That will make a Homepage field end in the binary control information,
and thus in the Packages file.

I've recently added a X-VCS-Bzr header to a couple packages of mine (in
the .dsc, though, not in the binaries, so it's only in the Sources file).
