I'm not saying I'm for it, but I think this is the only way to do it without
changing the way mono works now... think I mentioned before, the httpd in
monowall doesn't serve ANYTHING except index.php.

Making it serve an image would require changing that. IF however, the
index.php could generate the image from code stored in the config (not that
I'm advocating this!) then at least you wouldn't have to change the httpd -
which I'm assuming is the way it is for a reason.
