[ubuntu-art] Plymouth splash screen is too flat

The current Plymouth boot screen is perfectly flat; it's exactly one color
across it's entire height. This makes it look very ugly on some monitors.
I've experimented with some other backgrounds, and I found that:

- Adding a slight gradient helps immensely while still keeping the solid
purple color.
- Adding a gradient all the way to black at the bottom of the screen also
looks better, but may be a bit extreme.
- Using the default wallpaper looks best, but has contrast issues with the
white text
- Darkening the default wallpaper greatly increases contrast without majorly
harming appearance

Could the splash screen be changed to use some kind of non-flat background
