version.py is autogenerated in setup.py, using the values from the
changelog (and lsb_release).

We use lsb_release for almost anything. Those values are only used for a
browser string when fetching images from screenshots.debian.net, and
"Software Center/2.0.7debian3 (N;) Debian/unstable (unstable)"
I can change this, to use lsb_release:
(stable) "Software Center/2.0.7debian4 (N;) Debian/6.0 (squeeze)"
(testing) "Software Center/2.0.7debian4 (N;) Debian/testing (squeeze)"
(unstable) "Software Center/2.0.7debian4 (N;) Debian/unstable (sid)"
The version.py file would look like:
CODENAME=commands.getoutput("lsb_release -s -c")
DISTRO=commands.getoutput("lsb_release -s -i")
RELEASE=commands.getoutput("lsb_release -s -r")
Do you want this?
