... if this variant is closed source, you likely will never see it at Slackbuilds. Slackbuilds scripts rely on sources.
That isn't true at all. SlackBuilds can and do exist for closed-source binary-only software, in theory and in practice, in general and even at slackbuilds.org. They tend not to follow the standard templates, however, because files usually need to be moved manually. Usually it's just an archive extract, file copying, and possibly a custom rc script since most software assumes the typical init.d setup rather than Slackware's BSD-style init. I can't speak to this piece of software specifically.
I had an hidden agenda in mind that maybe someone finds the software appealing and creates slackbuild for it, so it can be installed via sbopkg. I'd kinda prefer it over gwenview and digikam, especially when using openbox, it's fast and it can preview pentax *.pef raw files. From v0.39 it picks up my systems default qtcurve theme, too.
