Uhm ok, that's fine.  Don't get upset.

I didn't make the original request, but I piped in and offered to
do the work, so for my part I'm just making it clear I'm not trying
to make anyone's life harder.  I was completely satisfied with the
1st response that it wouldn't get done.  I only offered to do the
work because Rob kinda put it out there that it was a way to get
it done.[0]

In closing, slackbuilds.org is awesome.


[0] I still think it's a good idea.  Meaning; I didn't offer to to
    do the work for altruistic reasons, but because I wanted the
    feature, which I thought was the point of Rob's message.
