[Slackbuilds-users] Error checking in SlackBuilds

Hello everybody,

Just checked out slackbuilds.org: thanks for that great idea! Just checking 
your guidelines, so I can possibly contribute the odd scripts.

One detail. Quote from the submission guidelines:

Build in error checking where possible; for instance, the following would 
cause the SlackBuild script to exit if the the decompress/extract operation 

    tar -xzvf $PRGNAM.$VERSION.tar.gz || exit 1

Wouldn't 'set -e' at the beginning of the script do the exact same thing?
