I also agree that it shouldn't be enabled by default, but if anyone is
interested I uploaded a grub graphic that matches the lovely looking
new usplash image.  Created by simply converting the usplash graphic
into xpm format in the GIMP.

Drop that into /boot/grub and then tell menu.lst to use the xpm.gz
file as splash.
