I need someone to start from /etc/init.d/linuxmce and...
(1) add code to do a bootsplash that will work with and without composite manager loading.
(2) fix the spurious switch to the other VT which is not needed, the usplash needs to be visible all the way up until X starts.
(3) implmement hooks for the StartService functions in that file to update usplash.
somebody want to take this on?
