It's really the sort of thing the LSB is intended for, and there are
even some extra tools to help (the application checker is able to do an
analysis suggesting what kind of portability you've achieved).

The negative... well, things are still moving at a fairly rapid pace
upstream and it's somewhat hard for LSB to keep up; and not as much
stuff as one might hope has achieved the kind of commonality consensus
(and work done to import) that one might want.

I do suggest that problems you run into be reported back here (the
bugtracker is an excellent place to request more stuff), but of course
new additions will appear in LSB 5.0 and later and so still doesn't get
you the wide range of distribution support.
