Okay, so, since I added the backup system, the program now actually
changes your GRUB splashimage. Cool, right? Two notes:

1. Run it as root! Without root access, the program can't make any
actual changes. Run the program as root by running it, from a terminal,
with "sudo python" or "gksu python" while in
the relevant directory. I'll work on making a launcher and package so
that this will all be more reasonable.

2. Make a backup! You might want to back up /boot/grub/menu.lst before
starting. To do that, just make a copy under a different name, like
"sudo cp menu.lst menu.lst.bak" or something, while in /boot/grub.
TinaSplash should have no trouble making its own backups; each session,
the first time it writes to menu.lst, it creates a backup in the name of
"menu.lst.backup0" in the directory /boot/grub/backup (which it creates
if not present). It stores up to ten backups, numbered 0-9, lowest =
most recent. Though it should work fine, you may want to create your own
backup, just in case, as this is a really important file--a _really_
important file--and the write mechanism in TinaSplash is rather wonky
and I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot series of tubes.
