Not speaking specifically of your script, which I have not tried, but
scripts on slackbuilds.org in general I would have to disagree. One of
the great things about slackbuilds.org is the fact that there is an
'editorial' panel who vet the scripts and ensure that there is a
certain consistency of approach.
