This is what Adobe and others do.

In fact Adobe show a range of start-up progress notifications, listing
fonts, enumerating plug-ins (another time consuming thing).
On the other hand our near instant start-up is a huge plus for our
product (and when we come to start using it as a Photo viewer - planned
- it will be a requirement)
In fact our static splash screen is very static - even the versions and
compile numbers, dates are hard-wired in. We really need to be able to
display strings on it. Is that easy with the new Splash class?
