BTW, the most significant obstacle to Debian supporting the LSB is that
there's no way to see if an implementation actually *works*.

Could someone *please* make some LSB packages that are expected to be
able to install correctly on an LSB compliant system? Say, nethack.lsb and
xbill.lsb? This should be as simple as getting a SuSE install, making an
rpm of nethack/xbill with the bins in /opt instead of /usr, and changing
the extension. Also creating, say, a boa.lsb would demonstrate most
of the packaging fundamentals. And something like tuxracer.lsb would
probably come close to demonstrating all the library requirements.

Anyone? Please?
