$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version:    n/a
Distributor ID: Debian
Description:    Debian GNU/Linux
Release:        3.1
Codename:       sarge
$ lsb_release -is

Any package that uses it is going to have to build-depend on the
lsb-release package, which has no dependencies (it is a bash shell
script and bash is required, so no explicit dependency needed) and is 88
kilobytes installed. Not too onerous, I think.

I now declare that the LSB is good for something.
