target ubuntu long term support, LTS, releases

Given most earthworms will be long running and os upgrades can be distruptive, it seems like it would be better to target binary releases for the LTS ubuntu releases instead of the latest (ie 12.04 LTS instead of the 12.10). The LTS versions come with 5 years of security patches as opposed to just 18 months for the regular releases.

So for now target ubuntu 12.04 LTS instead of 12.10. The next LTS will be 14.04 I assume.
