If we want this for the release, we should proceed with this. Or do you
want to move it to 7.0.1?

I would like to see Vincent's grass (with CC BY image and perhaps an easy
to get font) as splash and then the simple one with logo with white or
transparent backgroud but the smaller version I posted (where image height
is just the height of GRASS GIS and motto texts). Vincent, or some other
artists, are you able to work on that, or some other suggestions?

With the picture for startup screen, it would be nice to have an
alternative for cases where GRASS is on a machine with ISIS. I'm not sure
how many users it is targeting but we have this functionality now, so I
would keep it.
