              tribution  codenames  composed  of  lower case ASCII letters are
              accepted, and if the distribution does not qualify as oldstable,
              stable,  testing,  or unstable, then the same codename passed as
              argument is returned.

              that return a list, display the normal output followed by white-
              space and the number of days until the specified milestone.   If
              milestone  cannot  be calculated, the string '(unknown)' is dis-
