I don't understand. What do you mean by that?

Our problem is that everything is generated dynamically on the
backend, including images. One way to speed up things for us would be
for the backend to allready start generating the images before the
request for those images comes back from the mobile phone. We know the
request for these images will eventually come since we just sent out a
page containing links to these images.
Since I can't change how the backend functions I am thinking of
somehow prefetching the images. So basically I need something that
looks at the response to a request, identifies links to images in it,
and fetches these images, keeping them in cache so it can immediately
serve them when the request for them comes.
Right now I just want to know if there is some way I could do this
with apache, or if I need something else. If I need something else any
hits about a product that might do that would be welcome.
