it wouldnt if usplash would act like you describe below (which it doesnt)

right, but usplash currently doesnt support overlaid logos, currently
you only have the "wallpaper" (which is a black pic with the logo on it)
and the progressbar ... usplash itself tries to display that in a 4:3
format which on a physical wide screen becomes a stretched 16:9 (or
16:10 or whatever phys. size your screen has) picture ... 

to achieve what you describe usplash needs code changes and someon who
actually does them :)
