pmount does not *fully* work in Slackware 12.2 no matter what version of pmount you use (as of this date). I was just saying that if it is removed from the 12.2 repo, people could still get the SlackBuild from the 12.1 repo if they don't mind having to use pmount.allow to list a range of removable devices.
I think pmount still works perfectly fine (completely) if you use a kernel from Slackware 12.1 (or near equivalent kernel version). It might also work better with a custom kernel with some different sysfs options. None of this is in SW 12.2 so it does not really matter here.
