I agree that it would make more sense to have the perl handle this, but I am not quit sure how I would do it. Let me do some diggin and see what I can come up with, also if you find a good solution in the meantime please share with me as I would be very curious as to what you came up with.

Once upon a time (oh my gosh!) when there was only HTML and CGI was barely in its infacny server push animation was used for all sorts of things. Progress indicators, slide shows, even simple animated drawings, were all done with server push.
Lincoln Stein's CGI.pm has some server push capability and his newer CGI::Push module implements a cleaner interface. This appears to be slated for inclusion in the core release of Perl - I think it is in 5.8.1-RC4.
