Comment (by duncan):

 We still have a package url field in the installed package info, however
 that is actually useful because it could be used to point to the exact
 package tarball which was used to build the installed package. That'll
 require a little help in cabal-install to pass the information though,
 otherwise it will not know. Alternatively hackage could set the field in
 the .cabal file itself when packages are uploaded.
