As of the sesion today regarding the boot experience for Lucid, Plimouth will be used for a lot of the bootup niceties like splash and stuff prior to gdm's greater appearing, and mabe a little bit afterwards as well, which means xsplash is going away.
I don't know when plimouth will land in the archive, but I will keep my eye out for it, so we can start getting things together for our bootup splash. If there are PPA packages available sooner, then I think we need to try tem, so we can start getting our splash together.
I will be happy to help with any themeing stuff needed at the code level, however plimouth has a lot of plugins to do various things, as well as a scripting language to help do stuff, so we may have it easier this time then we did for usplash.
