Bug#154868: apt: "apt-cache policy" should show non-default http port numbers

Package: apt
Version: 0.5.4
Severity: normal

I think "apt-cache policy" should show the port numbers for http sources
on ports other than 80.  Eg, with sources.list entries of

    deb http://jones.argon.org      local-deb/
    deb http://jones.argon.org:8002 local-deb/

I end up with

      Installed: 3.35-1.0.1
      Candidate: 3.35-1.0.1
      Version Table:
     *** 3.35-1.0.1 0
	    500 http://jones.argon.org local-deb/ Packages
	    500 http://jones.argon.org local-deb/ Packages
	    100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
	 3.35-1 0
	    990 http://http.us.debian.org testing/main Packages
	    200 http://http.us.debian.org unstable/main Packages

There's no way to tell the 2 jones.argon.org entries apart, which is a hassle
when they're different versions.
