I want to propose and make the actual move of the WWW information from the
pkg-descr to the Makefile itself via a WWW variable.

doing this will have multiple benefits:
 * consistency all metadata bug this one are in Makefile
 * speedup make describe avoiding using grep to get the informations (make
   describe itself does not need speed but make index heavily use it and this
   will definitly benefit from speed up)
 * Third party tool will be able to probe the information more easily.

Do anyone have any concern about this?
