Two comments.
0. I haven't touched PIL lately but the last time I checked, it's
support for animated GIFs was somewhere between non-existent and
1. If you use a PIL approach, you have to run your whole process, keep
track of things and then generate an animated GIF which you'll put out
onto the webserver. This is not particularly useful since the work is
already done. It would be better to have Ajax based setup  which will
refresh regularly or some server side push mechanism.
