Here is an updated version of my patch which tries parsing
/etc/lsb-release first and only if that fails tries executing
lsb_release.  The reason is that executing lsb_release in a subprocess
takes half-a-second on my high-performance Athlon64 Ubuntu workstation,
and also that some installations have /etc/lsb-release but not
lsb_release.  See the docstring for more details about why to do it this
way and exactly what it does.
