Good idea!
I think it would be fair to tribute all the developpers who did a very hard and fastidious work in the refactor, by setting the theme of the splash screen to "refactoring".
They burnt a huge amount of energy in this, and stayed completely off the scene! refactor/cleanup is less rewarding than developping a brillant new feature, but is certainly more crucial for the long run.

So +1 vote for a refactor theme.

The roadmap says: "Milestone 13 - Inkscape 0.47 - Refactoring / Cleanup"
So maybe we can try to have a "refactoring" themed about screen?

I've had the following idea for a long time, and probably I won't be
able to draw it myself :-(  :
 A technical drawing of the Inkscape logo, showing gears and sprockets
and whatnot inside. So a semi-transparent Inkscape logo showing the
inside of Inkscape. Drawn on a piece of square line paper (with a pencil
drawing the logo?).


Stay on top of everything new and different, both inside and
around Java (TM) technology - register by April 22, and save
$200 on the JavaOne (SM) conference, June 2-5, 2009, San Francisco.
300 plus technical and hands-on sessions. Register today.
Use priority code J9JMT32.
