Splashy is indeed already using that functionality. It installs a file 
/etc/lsb-base-logging.sh, which is their to override functions from the
LSB library. It increments a progress bar triggered by calls to
log_end_msg made from init-scripts. That way we don't need change the
initscripts or install extra scripts, we get out info from all scripts
that use the LSB library.
