Maybe it would serve the interests of other derived distributions if we
had a command like dpkg-distribution (cf. dpkg-architecture) that
printed "debian" for the real Debian, "ubuntu" for Ubuntu, and so on?
Implementation might be keyed on a file like /etc/debian_distribution,
but the interface should be a command.
