	It can be done with so called server push methods using a
Content-type of multipart/x-mixed-replace, there's a description of
the technique at http://wp.netscape.com/assist/net-sites/pushpull.html.

	There's a 67 line C program to play a sequence of GIF images by
server push at http://wp.netscape.com/assist/net-sites/mozilla/doit.c. It's
a pretty simple technique that I think has been largely forgotten among
animated gifs, shockwave and fancy JavaScript.
