Slackware on Persistent USB drive?

I know there exists scripts to copy the Slackware install media to a USB drive and use that for installation purposes only, but what I'm wondering is how one can use that USB drive much like a LiveCD with persistent writes for any changes I do. I noticed that has many distros available, even Slax, but I want the full blown Slackware. Anybody tackle this yet?

I have not tried it myself, but could be what you want.
