aptitude should report the full url of broken sources

Bug Description

Binary package hint: aptitude

When a url in sources.list is broken it does not report the full URL,
only the domain. For example:

Err http://ppa.launchpad.net karmic/main Packages
  404 Not Found
Err http://ppa.launchpad.net karmic/main Sources
  404 Not Found

This is problematic when you have many sources with the same domain,
PPAs being the notable example. It makes it impossible to tell which
of the sources is at fault. Aptitude should report the full URL,
perhaps when some verbosity or debug flag is provided.

Almost two years and not so much as a comment. (This bug still exists in Natty.)
