In my layman's thinking, I would envision this as some special Woody 
widget which generates a random image for display, makes it available 
across some session-specific URI and does validation of the associated 
verification field on submit. Housekeeping of these temporary resources 
will be the main burden, plus some Java2D hacking, which apparently has 
been explained in DrDobbs already. Maybe the continuation id can be used 
for the temporary URI.

http://james.seng.cc/archives/000145.html seems to be a standalone 
Movable Type implementation. Sourceforge is down ATM so I can't check on 
the license and usability of the Sapience code.

This doesn't help a lot of course, but as we seem to be converging into 
making rich-text editing "just another Woody widget" [1], we might as 
well add this one to the list of TODOs for cool Woody/cForms.

[1] Spoiling Bruno's "lonesome hacking cowboy" thought train, I just 
want to confirm that he actually started working on this. He's still in 
a grumpy "friggin' stupid and unstable web browsers and Javascript as a 
development hosting environment" mood, though, so please light a candle 
for him. ;-)
