Splash screens make things feel slow, per se. ;] And give two
different GUIs for the same tasks (open recent at start vs open recent
once working, eg). Some call it bad gui and thus some apps are getting
rid of them to simplify and get directly into work with unified GUI,
Blender went the reverse path (before it was just a reminder of "new
version, saving user config recommended").
But yeah, as there is a splash (unless hacked out), it could load
things there while it waits the user to pick something or dismiss it.
