    Drop splash screen · de5b4080

    Summary:
    KDevelop 5 starts significantly faster with all the changes in the
    plugin loading mechanisms. I've also been able to reduce start up time
    of the welcome page plugin significantly lately. Still having a splash
    screen seems old-fashioned, plus adds even more delay to the startup.
    
    Thus finally want to kill it.
    
    More reasons for removing the splash:
    * Delays startup unnecessarily
    * The splash screen is still broken in some configurations:
      Bug: ~10 px border on the right for instance (not going to fix it)
    * It's 2016, splash screens are kind of out of fashion.
