Well, Thayer has recommended we remove it because the logo loses most
of the effect in the craptacular colors provided by the initial VGA
framebuffer.... me, I'm neutral. I don't reboot enough for that image
to be relevant.

I *do* think that we should remove the custom splash screens from
apps, but I also believe the decision is up to the maintainers of the
apps themselves.
