Er, you can't do that. LSB gives a philosophy for where things should
go. It says nothing about the exact versions. ISV codes have bugs with
some versions of Linux stuff and not others. So LSB certification
wouldn't mean very much in the "We tried it and it worked for us"
meaning of certification.

We find very few clusters with high-speed interconneect using Fedora
-- they're mostly on RHEL clones, with a few on SLES. There is a wider
variety of compiler customers.
