MD is already entirely based upon an extension-based structure, but
unsurprisingly there is no extension point to let users inject random
messages into the loading screen.

I'd be against putting this code into the MD core (for one thing, who
gets to choose which messages are in the list?), but I guess a
compromise could be to add an extension point that would make this
possible, preferably with a useful purpose too. The 'funny' AddIn
could then be distributed in an online AddIn repository.
