Splashy has one important bug to be solve before it goes to
testing. It respaw in initramfs :( After we solve it we'll be ready
tho let it go.

to do that if splashy or usplash is installed on final system. I can
try to do that next week.

Hardware support to splashy and usplash are, virtually, the same. We
have good results with splashy but it's still being worked on. The
same goes to usplash since we use it on a comercial product here at
O.S. Systems and it also sometimes just disapear... so no one is rock
solid yet :(

Yes. We would need it and it's is simple. IIRC
debian-installer/user-params or something like that.
