Wow, I had alot to read this morning.

I'm not a maintainer for initscripts, but I carefully watch all
functionality and bugs related to i18n and time issues.
Heh, I was forced to do this because of many bugs that were in those
areas in the past.
(Even my first 2 patches for Arch back in times when I was only
starting to use it in VMware and which I sent directly do Judd was
about fixing non-latin font support for non-UTF8 locales).

I sent this patch to Thomas and a copy here at the same time for review.
Thus I couldn't include "Our initscripts maintainers do like this
patch" in the message.
It this would be the case - I or Thomas would sent a message like
"There is a new branch in initscripts git with added _OPTIONAL_ splash
support via simple _hooks_. blah-blah-blah-etc-comes-here".

I thank to Thomas who patiently explained what this patch does and changes.
