We could put it in a tooltip (including a link to the splash screen)
over the initially displayed window area.  Since it is pretty much
impossible to get the mouse onto a link in a tooltip, the user will
feel _euphoric_ if he finally manages actually getting to the splash
screen itself.  Which is the right mood for perusing it.
