Why not simply follow Slackware releases for updates? I'll clarify my 
previous suggestion. Currently, the slackbuilds.org repository offers 
builds for Slackware 11.0 and 12.0. Now say 12.1 comes out - in a year? 
- then it will be time to move over every script, one by one, from the 
12.0/ directory to the 12.1/ directory... and at that time, a check can 
be made if versions are up to date. Which would mean something like a 
few weeks' worth of work, and then rest on our laurels for a year or so, 
until 12.2 or 13.0 comes out :oD
