Excellent point, Gary and Allan.  This is exactly the kind of thing I have not
had the time or energy at the end of the day to get in and implement, which is
why I hope the project can find a new home here.  If anyone needs pointers on
the APIs I have implemented to support splash screen themeing, or if any of
the code doesn't make sense, I am certainly available to explain myself..  :)

In response to the "unified themeing API/codebase" thread, I would definitely
be supportive of some unified API which took into account both login (KDM),
splash (ksplash or /ml), and screensaver password dialog interfaces, along with
any additional integrations (kicker?  kpersonalizer?) which would need to happen
to make life easier on the end user.  I'd be interested in seeing what kind of
ideas come out of it, and would love to participate in any way my limited time
could offer...
