I am happy to see LSB as it makes Linux go towards a system that may be used
by combining binary compilations of programs on many systems if it is done
Right now, when I am forced to make binary only versions of programs like
e.g. the the Plextor firmware upgrade program, I can only do it for libc.so.5
and for glibc-2.2. Anything in between gives problems.
