What I'm talking about is optional. If you don't like the splash screen idea you can a: not use it or b: not use it...I might have a third option but it escapes me right now.
But...there are some that might like to throw a splash up to advert the program you are about to install. Just an informative "look and feel" type thing that other installers support (granted...out of neccessity) but this seems like while it's not *neccessary* it might still be a nice human interface thing.
