As I said, I will listen to concerns, but right now, I haven't seen any
real arguments, just things like "Supporting things I don't
like/use/want is stupid". I don't use or like splash, in fact, I find it
annoying and stupid.
But Arch is about choice. If we can give users a choice to use splash by
adding a few simple hooks to a few scripts that don't hurt anyone, then
why not do it? Right now, users have to break their systems if they want
splash, is that the proper solution for you?

So, you suggest we should post one patch after the other to the list,
making the review a pain in the ass. Adding a branch is just a
convenient way to collect the work that has been done and show results
to others, so they can actually view what is being suggested (which I
assume most of you haven't done).
