GRUB has support for graphics in almost the same way as LILO.

As this would, at least, involve patching current init scripts (correct me if 
I'm wrong) I think it's better to redesign the whole init system to get it 
right. Anyway, RHGB on top of that new init system would be perfect.

(For those who want to use `bootsplash', maybe we could make a bootsplash 
enabled kernel available? For the time being, that is.)
