I have had some SlackBuilds in the past based on CVS or SVN snapshots
and always used "cvs_yyyymmdd" or "svn_yyyymmdd" as the version
number, so that it's clear from when the snapshot is.
To guarantee that your SlackBuild works with the snapshot, you will
have to have it hosted somewhere, since the cvs/svn repository might
change daily.
I hosted it on my own server as a tarball.

Hope I made my thoughts clear to you after a long day of work :)
