So in a fine grained kernel bootup verbosity world perhaps we should
have a few more modes:

school-library-silent  : 
  Absolutely no talking from the kernel or it goes to detention

juggling-penquin-ascii-animated-statusbar: 
  Far far better than just silly little "."'s

just-tell-me-what-I-think-is-worth-a-text-notice:  
  Something close to the current quiet mode, using mindreading
technology that I have
  patented to give a modicum of textual scroll based on what the user
"thinks" is worth
  reporting.

graphical:  
  yawn, boring

subliminal:
  why ruin the pretty graphical bootup with text I can actively read.
sublimal messaging will
  be far more effective and far less instrusive on the eye.
  
peepd:
  translate all textual or graphical information about statup into a
soundscape...
  too bad the netpeep project appears to be dead.
