LSB has too much stuff in it, so most distros aren't LSB compliant out
of the box - you have to install extra packages.

/etc/os-release is a better option:
http://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/man/os-release.html

My original concern with using that was that it *over*specifies the
distro (e.g. not only do CentOS and RHEL releases show up as different
platforms, but so do X.Y releases within a series), but the
binary-compatibility.txt idea resolves that issue, since a derived
distro can explicitly identify itself as binary compatible with its
upstream and be able to use the corresponding wheel files.

Regards,
Nick.
