Well let me turn that round - is waiting 2s so bad?

Not looked in detail at the code recently, but the splash code used
to have 2 variants - one was a fixed period wait, the other was
interruptable, and I believe this is still the case. Could the
splash be set as interruptable so those that want it can get
straight in and not have to wait 2 seconds?

Can you quantify the "a lot of users" that would benefit? Or do you
just mean you?

Sorry, but your arguments so far all amount to "this change is
better for me, so I don't care if it's worse for you".

I feel we need better justification for an increase in code size,
complexity and possibly extra settings before this can be
considered.
