#86 That -turbo thing needs to display the splash

Think about it -- you run mozilla -turbo and you have no idea how long it takes until the preloader has finished its job. (Aside from watching the HD lights).
I think that the preloader is the best time to display the splashscreen, which will show, and users will expect it, exactly what is loading. I don't really like having the preloader run, and not have any feedback about what is going on.
Other programs do the same thing -- McAfee antivirus, ZoneAlarm etc.
Of course, we'll then need a -quiet option to turn off the splashscreen.
