Usplash should use a time-based progressbar support

Registered by Usplash Smooth on 2008-11-18

Provide a time-based progressbar for usplash. This would make the usplash animation much more smooth and visually appealing and provide an accurate remaining time of the boot or shutdown process to the user.

2009-01-05: Mr. Usplash smooth, can you please talk to Scott about this? I guess Scott's plans about changing init scripts to upstart tasks, and your work on usplash progress reporting will influence each other heavily.
