Re: Why does mkinitrd require plymouth?

why does mkinitrd require plymouth? There are different aims to adjust package dependencies for security or minimal installation reasons. For example:

We would like to eliminate several packages from the minimal install.
# rpm -e libpng

Can we have mkinitrd to optionally use plymouth? If its there, build it in to the initrd. Otherwise let a server boot in text mode since it doesn't have a video display on it?

Plymouth is what provides the boot log as well.
