A couple packages of mine ship already with an X-VCS-Bzr header in the
source. Example:

  (Format: X-Vcs-${VCS}: ${URL})
  X-Vcs-Bzr: http://people.debian.org/~adeodato/code/packages/taglib

Another, perhaps more parseable format, would be:

  X-VCS-Url: ${VCS}:${URL}
  X-Vcs-Url: bzr:http://people.debian.org/~adeodato/code/packages/taglib

Though you'd had to wonder what you'd do with a svn:// url.

Looks good, but i think we could write a proposal for new headers to
address 'vcs' and 'homepage' needs, or add it somewhere else and sync
(like we do with Tags). Thoughts?
