Heh, googling for "sbosubmit" yields no meaningful results ;-)

Mine has been in slow brewing for quite some time already, almost 1 year 
I think.

Yep, and as time allows, more to come.
There will be a lot of fun with text processing and regex in C++.

The core functionality is already there, meaning you just type the 
command from within the SlackBuild directory and you're done ;-)

What is left, is to extend the submission files verification, including 
for example parsing of SlackBuild and checking its values.
