All the uncommented information (i.e. active) was preserved
though, but wondering if I should make a copy of the file ?

Like: before the interface saves the changes (currently only
enable/disable), it would make a backup copy of slapt-getrc

See http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php/KPackageKit?content=84745

The code is (or will eventually be) available at:
git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/packagekit/PackageKit
and for the GUI:
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/playground/sysadmin/ 

Sadly the new version (PackageKit 0.5.x) requires a version of
PolicyKit that is not available in Slackware yet, so there is
no way to get the authentication to work. But backporting the
slapt backend to PackageKit 0.4.x might be the easiest fix...
