It should as you can't assume that your dependencies are configured when your
own package is being configured (Debian Policy 3.5). So if you depend on a
properly install *and* configured lsb_release, either add a Pre-Depends *or*
chose a different way to ensure it is configured properly. And this is an easy
one actually as all you need to do is to run update-python-modules -p.
