Since we can't think of any particular reason not to stick more
metadata in exhereses (and use per-package exlibs to avoid duplication)
rather than introducing a new metadata.xml-style file...

What keys do we want, and what is their format? I'd say something
like...

BUGS_TO="
    joe at exherbo.org
    fred at exherbo.org [[ comment = [ if it's gnome related ] ]]"

REMOTE_IDS="freshmeat:paludis vim:123"

UPSTREAM_CHANGELOG="http://blah/changelog.txt [[ lang = en ]]"

UPSTREAM_RELEASE_NOTES="http://blah/1.23.txt [[ lang = en ]]"

UPSTREAM_DOCUMENTATION="
    http://blah/doc/en/ [[ lang = en ]]
    http://blah/doc/fr/ [[ lang = fr ]]"

Discuss.
