Ummm... I like this request but I'd also add:

- security out of the box (really tight with SELinux set in strict

know what to do to disable it)
- profiles for everything: bash/shells accouts, gnome/kde accounts.
and let's not forget a good way to manage those profiles, like

And lastly, I'm the project leader for Splashy and I cant tell you
that this is the year of Splashy: we are going to kick some butt this
year. Splashy 0.4 is on the works and will be really improved, with a
GUI (Gsplashy), a common library (libsplashy) and stable schemas for
its XML-based themes. This will allow people to do wonderful things
with Splashy and get some real integration with the multiple
suspend-to-disk, encrypted-disk and other prompts that some power
users get at boot. All done and recognized by Splashy.

We have a meeting scheduled for next Sunday (Jan 14 @ 20:00 UTC) if
any of you want to join us.
