How bout this (thisis prob. a bad idea, but so what, let's hear YOU
contribute one ;)) - Figure out the procedure that is called the MOST during
bootup and add a little function to it, like
cycle_bootup_line_at_bottom_of_screen(), then, when the kernel is done
booting, nullify this procedure call in that function :)

eg:
JMP $2
$2:
cycle...screen()
$1:

.

. Then after its done booting,
