Splash screen during boot

What would it take, I wonder, to keep the u-boot splash screen up while Linux starts to boot, until exquisite starts?

It's a minor polish issue, I know, but I'm just curious if it's the sort of thing that can be done elegantly and could be overridden with splash=false or the commandline, or what have you.

Also, can anyone point me toward any documentation on how to edit the splash partition?  I'm thinking perhaps of making a 'If found, please return to this guy' type message with gimp.
