This thread is about a *server* SIG, isn't it?  Most servers do not need
disk encryption as they are located in physically secured rooms.  They
must be able to reboot without manual interaction too.

Hence, when password prompts are the only reason for plymouth, then
plymouth should be optional; especially when it has heavy dependencies
like pango.
