Is it possible to display an image to the user, without loading all the trappings of a whole widget / event-loop environment like Prima, Tk, Wx, Win32::GUI, etc?

Specifically, I want something simple that I can execute in a BEGIN block to display a splash image to the user while the rest of the application is compiled and initializes, which takes about 5-10 seconds. The program in question is a perl Wx application running under MS Windows.
