I've done it on slack 10.1, but it's been a while.  I don't think it would be 
too hard to write one, I found it very easy.  I like slack because I prefer 
to compile from scratch over rpms.  But I can understand in today's world 
that this might not be very desirable.  Good luck I'd love to read it when 
you get it done.
