You still don't understand - the LSB specifies which symbols from
various libraries etc. applications can use. Thus, one package should
be able to install and work on any compliant system - at least, that's
the theory and goal. Thus, instead of having "<foo> for Red Hat Linux"
we'll hopefully have "<foo> for LSB and <bar> for LSB " - at least,
that's what I hope (I don't care about things installing elsewhere
to help the other distributions, I care about it for people developing
and deploying applications)
