If your fancy script ain't up to slackbuilds's standards, i'll gladly host it 
on my own lil' slackware-related project, Slackermedia at 

While not quite as ubiquitous as SlackBuilds, it does aim to bring neat 
multimedia stuff to all those creative slackware people (and slackware to 
those creative people).  Your script sounds really useful.  And where ever the 
script ends up, I'ma gonna link to it anyway.
