I agree that there could be some kind of default script to do the job, or at 
least point out the user where to look at. The same script could be used as a 
note to the packagers to modify the script accordingly.

Anyways, if someone is up to making one, please use lsb_release (for example 
lsb_release -i will return the distro) instead of trying to use /etc/debian* 
or /etc/redhat* or anything else distribution specific. Nowadays distributions 
are LSB compliant and if they aren't, I don't think those should be separately
