When doing a bzr co lp:ubuntu/binary_pkg, the correct source package should be grabbed the same way as apt-get source work:

Assigning to LP code, that has access to all the info, and any client-side change
would only be querying it anyway.

One problem is that if bzr changes to not storing expanded URLs then this would
break URLs when a source package was added that had the same name as an
existing binary package (perfectly valid operation).

James, with respect to bzr changing, I'd expect it would store both the expanded and non-expanded versions of the URLs, that way we could offer intelligent error messages on name resolution.
