On thing I forgot to mention is that you can actually display the
current OS/Net version by running:

    $ pkg info osnet-incorporation | grep Branch | awk '{print $2}'

This should work on both Illumos (regardless of distribution) and
Solaris 11. In the former case, it will reveal the illumos-gate build
which the system is currently based upon. On Solaris, it will return the
current SRU.

A noticeable exception is Tribblix, since  it only uses IPS for building
illumos and then uses a ips2svr4 script to convert core packages to
traditional SVR4 packages, which is what Tribblix uses for its zap
overlays packaging framework.
