Actually, anyone can do it and you don't even need to overwrite the
initscripts package. The initscripts in testing will load functions
from /etc/rc.d/functions.d/*. Due to the way shell scripts work, if I
redefine a function, it overwrites it.

This way, one can simply create a functions.d/ file that overrides the
standard stat_* functions to call splash related functions. No need to
additions to the initscripts package, it's all there for ya.
