SubjectRe: Boot messages (Was: Re: Ideas for v2.1)
I thought about something like that, but either the rotation or 
animation code would have to be in the kernel or it wouldn't be able
to do anything until the kernel starts init. I don't like the idea
of a lot of special purpose graphics code in the kernel.

On the other hand, if we actually find a way to free up the memory
this code takes up after the kernel is done initializing everything
it **MIGHT** be an interesting compile time option.
