Now we are getting down to the crux of the problem, no matter what we
did someone would say you should have done it this way or that way.
Since SlackBuilds.org tries to follow Slackware style be it written or
unwritten that means following Slackware's package naming style also.
The _SBo tag is needed to distinguish our builds from official ones.
But I mean come on guys is it really that hard for the end user to
change the tag to TAG=${TAG:-_SBo12.1} or whatever if you need this
"feature". Heck you can even do it at build time via:
TAG="_SBo12.1" ./*.SlackBuild
