Are you going to build distribution? No problem...

Others please correct me if I'm wrong:

At build time the substacks essentially become separate files which require
the engine to open. That means they are on disk, and loading them into RAM
is when they require memory. So if you _close_ your splash, it should no
longer require any RAM.

So, unless the splash is so huge it causes a problem with disk space (hard
to imagine), there really is no problem.
