well, it's for comic strips.  I have an existing "solution" in perl, but 
it's slow/ugly/hard to modify, thought it would be fun to move.  The 
sites only give a month of history; i sometimes like to look back, ya know?

Anyway, I was afraid of this.  Probably the thing to do is to use cocoon 
to write the main stuff, but make an action in java to actually fetch 
the image.  Thanks, though for your help.
