[Distutils] Finishing PEP 345

While PEP 386 is waiting to be accepted in python-dev, I'd like to
finish PEP 345 so we can propose it right after PEP 386 is (hopefully)

The remaining point I can see is about : Repository-URL,
Repository-Browse-URL, Bug-Tracker-URL.

As Ian suggested I propose to change these three fields to:

Project-URL (multiple-use) :

    A string containing an URL for the project and a label for it.
separated by a comma


           Bug Tracker, http://bitbucket.org/tarek/distribute/issues/

This field, like Requires-Dist, can be present multiple times. The
label of the URL is preferrably unique
but there will be no control of this unicity. Although the label is
limited to 32 signs so the developer stay concise.
The URL is a valid browsable URL. (http/ftp/https).

PyPI could then use these URLs on the project page like this:

 <a href="http://bitbucket.org/tarek/distribute/issues/">Bug Tracker</a>

Any thoughts ?
