 In kdebase/workspace/ksplash/, see README, ksplashx/README and 
ksplashx/themes/. The current and only theme there is modelled to match the 
KDE3 ksplash theme (which I guess means it should be kept at least as a 
template), but as said above, I'd suggest not using it and instead going with 
a fullscreen splash. I can write the description.txt file for it if needed. 
Also, make sure to read the current limitations in ksplashx/README before 
starting to devise the unleashing of your art :).
