Good call. Since some people already mentioned it: Abortable splashes

My solution adds asplash(f) which is abortable by anykey (and it returns
the key pressed, so the caller can make use of it, like iterating the
splash until a specific button was pressed). The most annoying splashes
should be replaced. The most important splashes could stay unabortable.

Jonathan somewhat simpler solution replaces the sleep in the existing
splash itself, but asks for ACTION_STD_CANCEL. I.e. all splash is now
abortable, but only by a specific button.

Best regards.
