I'm sorry Hunter, but if these kind of patches are to be applied is up
to the maintainers.
maybe if Larry hasn't answered yet is because he's not gonna apply it,
but he has the last call on his own scripts.
consider also that we assume for our scripts a full and clean
installation of the latest Slackware stable, and such platform contain
pulseaudio, we don't officially support pure alsa installations.
