Actually, usplash exposes information that was not previously visible.
It displays a progress bar for the boot/shutdown sequence, so you can
see how far along in the seqeuence the system is. This is information
that is not available without usplash, unless you have the boot sequence
memorised. Mine has too many deamons started for me to do so, so I
appreciated usplash doing that.

(The progress bar has significant room for improvement, since it counts
