          Splash Screen, as in java.exe (RT-22961)

      The virtual machine takes a while to load and start running Java code. Developers have complained that their splash screens are not displayed immediately. This feature intends to remedy that by providing a native splash screen in the launcher similar to the one that exists in java.exe where an image is displayed as a splash screen. The one problem with simply displaying an image is that it is static and version numbers and copyrights must be redrawn by an artist or someone with Photoshop. We can do better and provide the ability to render the text of the copyright and version number on a splash screen image. It is likely that this code will be an integral part of the single-source launcher.
