Easy Splash switch?

I'd like to use a different splash screen than the default, but I'm completely new to programming and only know bits and pieces of Python. Is there any way to change the splash screen without having to uncompile and recompile anything? Specifically, I'd like to use this one:

You have to compile it

You have to compile it yourself. And if you do change it, you can't share it (trademark issues).

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I'll do

it for you if you would like.

John, it's easy to add support for custom splash screens, so why don't you?

Simple

Then folks would redistribute packages with custom splash screens, which isn't allowed. Even redistributing a Firefox logo altered as a splash screen image is a trademark violation. Mozilla isn't cracking down on that at the moment, but they may.

Would you?

That would be awesome. You can get the pic from the above link. If the end file is under 10 mb, email it to me at onionguy92@hotmail.com, or else put online and link to it. Thanks.

btw, Maskerade was good, but Small Gods was even better.

Sure

I'll send it, but if it's over, I won't post a link.
As John said, it's illegal to redistribute. However, I may put it on RapidShare.
