I've given up on that argument.  We are not a 'standard' distro, but 
none the less, whether we like it or not, we are considered a distro by 
everyone else out there.  Ever hear of distrowatch?  Look us up! ;-)

It should be added IMO....and should further use the lfs-release number 
so that if anybody is questioning modifications, you can easily look 
back at the version referenced to see if there were any modifications.  
I'm not even sure about leaving the date in there...but I think it's fine.
