I would put the images into a static web directory, either on the same 
or different server. Then your main server just sends the url (or 
relevant portion of the url, or list of all urls to download), and then 
the client grabs the images from your image server using urllib.

Let Apache do what it's good at, instead of reinventing that particular 
wheel.
