Ahem. I hardly dare say this, but a certain person (who shall remain
nameless) faked something similar using an animated gif. This may sound
frivolous, but if the report doesn't take too long to run, and is
reasonably stable in the amount of time it takes, it gives you that
'hey, I'm doing something, don't hit reload' effect without any of the
hastle. I'm not sure how easy it would be to do with cocoon though, I
must admit (since it relies on doing nasty things with javascript).
