platform.linux_distribution() was added in 2.6 as an alias for
platform.dist().  However the documentation lists platform.dist() as an
alias for platform.linux_distribution() and there is no information that
the latter appered in 2.6 whereas the former exists since 2.4 I think.

Not sure what the fix is, but it should be documented properly with "..
versionadded:: 2.6".
