    "Ay. World is finished. Everyone can go home and watch Friends reruns now."

    But well, there actually have been worse arguments given that VGA console is
    getting less and less important. I recently did a perusal of alternative
    distributions and didn't find a single one that didn't default to having a
    splash screen hide the kernel during boot (and if I'm not mistaken, only one
    of them provided me with the option during installation to not boot into X
    immediately afterwards).

    Sure, that in itself needn't necesarily be of concern to anyone who, err, is
    not concerned but any such colouring feature appearing when there's only a
    smathering of people left that still cares about the VGA console in the
    first place really isn't all _that_ far out as an argument...
