New patch with a couple suggestions from chx.

* $foo === NULL is faster than is_null($foo)
* Removed 'bootstrap' from the function name since it is not really
part of the bootstrap system.

When testing/applying updates #2 and #3 of this issue need to be
handled too.

New Druplicon which will need to replace misc/druplicon.png. The current
file in that location is a giant flat druplicon which isn't used

This patch makes the database errors which occur when the database
connection information is wrong or the database isn't up much nicer and
more explanatory. To do this it adds a themeable function,
theme_maintenance_page(), and a way to get Drupal running without a
theme but the ability to execute themeable functions in the usual way.
This means we can use the same code to give upgrade.php a nicer look in
the future.

I was about to do something similar on a less ambitious scale (mainly
the connect function), because what we get now is ugly and looks

+1 from me for this. Great job!

+1, This looks great. Get this in and then we can do something with the
upgrade.php system and it will look just great.
