[SailfishDevel] App splashscreens on Sailfish

I don't know if there's something official by Silica, but I got a harbour rejection for long loading times a while ago.
I did the following:
my "initialPage", I just show some splash image (anchors.fill: parent)
and I include a "Loader" item that overlaps that (also anchors.fill:
parent). The Loaders asynchronous property is set to true.
the Loader loads, does the rest of the apps initialization, so you get a
state change when it's done Loading. Then it's done, I make "the Loader
visible" (and the splash screen invisible). That reduced my initial
loading times a lot.
