If you want this for _Sugar_ then please do not just rely on a specific 
distro, but document in an INSTALL file what it is from that particular 
distro that you rely on - so that other distros can mimic that.

If you are not targeting Sugar but just a specific distribution of it 
like, say, SoaS, then obviously you need not document anything.  But it 
would be sad if you do not target Sugar globally.

Kind regards,
