Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: ubufox

There are many websites that provide Ubuntu software that is not in the
official repositories, meaning that they list somewhat lengthy
instructions to add a repository.

I propose a pseudo-protocol in Firefox to provide the easy addition of
apt repositories.

It would be structured as follows:

 - Binary repository: apt-add://www.repository.test/ubuntu:gutsy:main
 - Source repository: apt-add://src/www.repository.test/ubuntu:gutsy:main

To add a key:

 - apt-key-add://www.repository.test/ubuntukey.asc
