Re: rhgb no more

This is a continuation of our "BetterStartup" feature from a few
Fedoras ago (I would post a link but the wiki seems to be down).  The
replacement for rhgb will be a mixture of two things:

1) Starting gdm as early as possible and fitting it to give boot
progress before asking for login.   This is somewhat in line with the
early-login prototype feature some of you may remember from several
fedora releases ago.

It may be too early to ask about that, but from a theming/artwork point of view, is correct my understanding that this will be one piece less to theme? I expect we will have the during the progress the same background image as GDM (which uses the same image as the default desktop) and a progress bar made with GTK+. Maybe a panel (also made with GTK+?) to hold the progress bar? A splash image? Some icons from the default icon theme? Additional animations?

2) Hiding boot messages before gdm unless escape key is pressed.  For
graphics hardware that has drm modesetting, we'll be able to show some
sort of pretty graphics, and for everyone else we'll show a very
simple text mode progress.
