usn.py, templates/webpage-markdown.txt: Deduce LP links from source packages

Special care must be taken when building the links from a given binary
package to its source package and source package version on Launchpad
since the USN database has no direct mapping between binary packages and
source packages. This commit injects reasonable guesses, when possible,
at what the corresponding source package and source package version
links are for each binary package in a USN. If reasonable guesses can't
be made, no link is created.

For ESM releases, no links are created since the source package version
links will be dead. The source package links wouldn't be dead but
the pages would have outdated information describing what's in the
regular archive rather than what's in the ESM archive.
