I think it's a good idea. I am maintaining a few audio Slackbuildscripts
and thought about doing so, but i was afraid it would be removed.
Would it? Maybe for security or whatever reasons we add an option
to all these scripts that is mentioned in the README like this:
"to disable setcaps pass the option --disable-caps to the script"
$ whatever.Slackbuild --disable-caps

The default behavior then would be to include setcaps in the doinst.sh.
