Users should be able to select text in the splash screen displayed
using Help > About Emacs. This is one way that people are used to
getting the version info in many apps. They will look here first for
that info, and try to copy and paste it.

Currently, as soon as you press a mouse button (for example) in the
splash buffer, it disappears. This is disconcerting, especially if it
happens just after Emacs started up and you haven't yet learned how to
redisplay this screen. The screen should also mention that you can
redisplay it at any time using Help > About Emacs.
