Disabling the Android boot animation... ?

It seems that the Android boot animation really consumes a lot of CPU.
At least when running on the ARM fast models, I see a typical steady-
state load (bootanimation+surfaceflinger) of about 65% CPU.
I can kill the boot animation interactively, but does anyone know how to
disable it properly? This would likely be a benefit to the test and
validation work on the models.
After killing the boot animation, I can boot a fresh release to the
desktop in under 8 minutes on the model, with full cache modelling
disabled. A preinitialised image will boot to the unlock screen in
around 2.5 minutes.
