[lsb-discuss] Using LSB as a mix-in to reduce dependency count in RPM packages

So we're working on RPM packaging for Google Chrome.
Here's what I think our dependency list would be using various flavors of LSB:

lsb >= 3.2, lsb-core-ia32 >= 3.2, libgconf-2.so.4, libasound.so.2,
xdg-utils, libcairo.so.2,  libpangocairo-1.0.so.0
lsb >= 4.0, lsb-core-ia32 >= 4.0, libgconf-2.so.4, libasound.so.2, xdg-utils
or (assuming xdg-utils and libasound make it out of trial use in LSB-4.1)
lsb >= 4.1, lsb-core-ia32 >= 4.1, libgconf-2.so.4

(And in practice, it could be that every lsb distro out there has
libgconf-2 installed anyway, so maybe we could cheat and
leave that off even though it's not standardized.)

Golly, is LSB finally becoming sufficient for desktop apps?
