Hmm, links work in `fancy-splash-screens' (started from Help->About Emacs),
but don't work in `normal-splash-screen'.  I think we should make this
screen more persistent, so only special keys (`q' and `SPC') make it

The automatic text cycling is too annoying in all regards: even if the
user doesn't finish reading one screen, it jumps to another.  I think
we should replace this with tabs where clicking on them switches to
another screen.
