I second that sentiment. We really seem to be snatching failure from the
jaws of success.

	* User unfriendly debugging output.
	* English status text regardless of the system locale.

When errors or a timeout issue occurs, usplash already reverts to the
console. So, there really a reason to leave it there.

A quick try at cleaning up the process indicates that the following
files need to be modified to remove everything but the "System is
[restarting | shutting down], please wait..." line.
