is it possible to use a splash screen yet with newcons? I've been looking at the source code for VT, and it would appear there has been some work done towards this? 

Also the wiki page shows limited support: 

I've tried the standard method of enabling a splash screen but it of course does not work. I don't think I was able to get it to work with syscons either whereas it used to work. 

Is there another way? Or is it still not ready yet?
