	Well, that was my initial reaction. But it is a hugely visible part of
GNOME so I think it makes sense to allow it to be changed somehow.
Currently its a gnome-session preference ... adding it to the session
properties capplet IMHO would be really silly but allowing theme authors
to supply a different splash screen seems a lot less silly.

	Hmm, that's not a direct answer to "why is it interesting or
important", though :-) Themes change the "look and feel" of GNOME. The
splash screen image is a very prominent part of the "look" at least (but
so is the desktop background image and that isn't themeable so ...)

Good Luck,
