Bug#613664: should understand 'apt-cache showsrc <srcpkg>/<release>'

Package: apt
Severity: wishlist

It is possible to select a specific release of a binary package for
display with apt-cache, as in 'apt-cache show apt/unstable', but it is
not possible to do the same with source packages:

$ apt-cache showsrc apt/unstable
W: Unable to locate package apt/unstable
N: No packages found

Please support this functionality.
