The "Debian alternatives mechanism" gets that name because it came from 
Debian, not because it exists on Debian only.

On OpenSUSE, it comes in a package called "update-alternatives". On Fedora, 
for some reason, it's munged up with chkconfig, but it still exists. I remember 
it existed on Mandriva too when I used it.
