is /etc/debian_version trustworthy?

(For those who don't follow the thread about preseeding X debconf 
values, I need a way to support both woody, sarge and future releases 
and I need a way to know the current release)

Can I count on /etc/debian_version holding specific and well known 
values? (aside from the case a stupid user changes the contents of 
the file)
If not, is there *any* other way to know the debian release version 
(aside from keeping huge package version maps)?
