If you're *really* bored, you can pop up the old-school MacOS icons

This actually has lots of merits.  If we put icons up for each service we started, this could start during the GDM login (across the bottom, lets say) and if the user logs-in before we're done starting services, the icons could be preserved and continued during the session init screen (where there are icons going across the bottom of the GNOME/KDE login banners) and the only "wait" point would be until the session init is done.

That way you could have "needs attention" GUI items run/addressed first-thing.
