Again: You cannot chose a number for a symlink which works on every
distribution, because there is no way to make sure that this number
will really work on every distribution.  This number can become
wrong if you install an additional package or if you upgrade to the
next Distribution release. For this reason LSB does not specify

And please, don't put me always in an extra CC, I'm subscribed on
