This and several related pauses during boot have been the subject of
repeated questions over many years.

I think part of the problem is that they are not seen by many developers
and testers [rightly] using fast, modern machines. On older and slower
machines it is a serious problem, especially if you are trying to
convert a new user.

Long pauses and blank screens are VERY frequent during boot on old
machines. It would be very useful if this could be avoided -- even a
text-only message explaining what it's doing would help.
