What about JSON? Not that I think it's a terribly good idea, but it's
just a thought.

Another thought is possibly using a database, relational or otherwise,
rather than the file system. Of course, you'd have to write your own
servlet to access the image from the database instead of the filesystem,
so I'm not sure it buys you much over the other solutions presented already.
