The other problem with pushing the whole thing is that  you really screw up
the user if they were trying to enter data in a form.

I shudder to suggest it, but it does work - try dynamically generating text
in a GIF.

P.S. For an amusing Netscape bug. Try using client-pull with an inline
image.  Someone made the "time to pull a new document" flag global to the
page instead of per-image. So the first image comes up fine, the second
image replaces your page.

I'm not sure which upsets me more: that people are so unwilling to accept
responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager to regulate
everyone else's.
