Yes, this is similar to what I want to achieve, but:
- it does not provide information for different distributions and other
systems than APT
- it does not provide multiple versions for different distribution versions
- it does not provide localized application descriptions

And I do not think such amount of information should be put in URLs, it
is just too big. URLs should not hold data.
