I won't be doing such a thing as adapting my own OpenJDK scripts for SBo.

Nobody wants to compile OpenJDK from scratch, it takes way too long.
Also, finding out all the source tarballs to use for a new release is
not trivial.
Either use my prebuilt packages, or do as Pat always did: download the
official Oracle binaries and wrap them into a package. If anything,
that would also have to be what a jdk.SlackBuild does if that gets
hosted at slackbuilds.org. Perhaps I will even maintain the SBo
version for that.
