How about a real sweep:  Use some Perl to inject a DF object that's
at the center of your screen.  Keep injecting the object with a
different angle, sweeping the full 360 degrees.  I think you can get
the two lines fairly close together but not quite make them one
line.  Still, would be a cool effect.  Might look more like a clock
though 'cuz it wouldn't be a totally smooth sweep:  It'd be
"ticking" one degree at a time.  If it was fast enough people might
not notice the discrete steps though.
