It looks like these don't show up on the /simple pages, making
scraping of those links a bit complicated and brittle. Can that be
added? Or is there another way to fetch these links more

Danny: my suggestion, given that PEP 345's already implemented, is to
just pick a Project-URL label, document it, and encourage people to
use it for source control. Python Packages is the only thing that
needs it right now, so you can just paint the bikeshed however you
want and establish a de facto standard.
