Its optional, but should be provided.

In general it can be of every size.

Create a tar.gz file with the directory that contains splash.theme and
the images in it. The user can then install the theme using the "Install
theme" method build into the settings dialog.
> 3. Are you guys accepting splash themes for inclusion in xfce4-session?
Currently no, but you may want to publish your theme on some theme site
on the internet (freshmeat, themedepot, etc.).
