That depends on how ::after is implemented.  Doing it with the 
implementation Gecko used to have until recently would have been 
well-nigh impossible.  With the current implementation, I think it would 
only take changes to CSS parsing, selector matching, dynamic update 
handling (this would be particularly fun), and box model construction. 
And then whatever I've forgotten.
