I agree with the Kjella. The fact remains that the current graphical bootup is a pretty poor implementation. If Windows or OSX had such a flicker-filled boot up we'd be mocking them. There is no reason a decent grub-to-desktop implementation cannot be flicker free, support modern resolutions, AND still allow for boot error notification. In fact I think current ubuntu usplash can be configured to be silent except under certain circumstances (fsck etc.)
Sure. Just remove the "quiet" option, but not the "splash" one. You get a "pretty" progress bar (actually, it's pretty ugly) with scrolling boot messages underneath.

Also, for those who don't know, boot messages are logged on VT1, VT2, and/or VT8 while the system is booting with usplash, and I'm pretty sure you can hit scroll lock to freeze them.
