Default debian/watch problem due to http://code.google.com download page's link format change

* Asias He <asias.hejun@gmail.com>, 2010-05-15, 17:16:

Recently, code.google.com changed the download page link format.
As a result, the old debian/watch file in packages whose upstream source code
hosted on code.google.com did work anymore.

[...]

The new download page contain the "detail" link, one has to follow
the new "detail" link in order to find the real download url.
something like this:
http://code.google.com/p/ibus/downloads/list
http://code.google.com/p/ibus/downloads/detail?name=ibus-1.3.3.tar.gz&can=2&q=
http://ibus.googlecode.com/files/ibus-1.3.3.tar.gz

I believe this problem affects all the packages whose upstream source
code is hosted on code.google.com.

Is there an easy way to deal this.


Yes, there is (for some values of "easy"):
