Tell Ubuntu and Debian apart in a shell script ...

Is something on the lines of:

cat /etc/apt/sources.list|grep '^deb '|grep 'http://security\.'|head -n 1|grep -o 'debian|ubuntu'

a safe idea or does it already make too many assumptions?

Otherwise, what methods do you use to tell them apart from the shell?
