One of the delights of Gretl is the speed at which it loads.  Even on an old 400 Mh PC loading is instantaneous.  A splash screen may tell one that something is happening for a program that takes time to load (e.g. Texmacs or Jabref).  For a splash screen to be effective one would have to slow down loading Gretl and I do not think this is a good idea.

One small suggestion about the interface (for consideration for some future version) would be to allow a user to step through a script line by line from the "script  editor"

Why don't you use the "About" box (Help/About gretl) as a starting point? I'd
quite like that as a splash screen already, with some extra work it could make
for a very nice one.
