My mistake, I did not notice what the previous version for 13.0 was.

I would say that this is something which depends on upstream. For
instance, mplayer developers actually recommend compiling from svn. I
don't have the time to check the respective upstream
recommendations/warnings for all beta/rc/svn packages on
Slackbuilds.org, but in this specific case there is a clear one and the
user should be made aware of it.
