How do I display an image from the web with squirrel?

Hopefully it's just a module I need to load and then the command could be something like:

headline.http = (url, 0,0,150,150)

Hi,

There is no built in way to do this with the current version.

The closest thing is that you can run external commands from squirrel, so if you really needed to you could call a separate program that goes off and downloads the file to a spot where Attract-Mode will find it....
