Ack, raised the severity for this reason, usplash is mainly used on desktops
and laptops, which is also where hibernation is mostly used... so.


I'm not sure whether it works everywhere, but splashy works 100% in my Dell Latitude D510, including hibernation.

I also love the fact that the disk encryption password is asked without ever leaving the splash screen, which is IMO part of a really great desktop experience. Last I checked, usplash would fall you back to the text console in order to ask for a LUKS password.
