There was some talk about the fsck script talking to usplash/splashy. I
haven't looked at how that progressed. In splashy we shouldn't have to do
that much I think. We have an interface to update a progress bar and write
stuff to the splash screen (IIRC). Maybe I'll have some time in the
comming months to do some Debian work again...
