I wonder why not use #-syntax, just like hg does:

Vcs-Qux: quux://host.org/path/to/repo#debian/unstable

git does not support that, seems it doesn't know about the # character:

$ git clone 'git://anonscm.debian.org/anonscm.debian.org/openstack/nova.git#debian/unstable'
Cloning into 'unstable'...
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
