I've seen code that puts out an image that is .gif-compatible
(ie can be viewed in any browser) but is not LZH-compressed,
ie does not fall under the patents.  I could write a PHP file
to do it...

The drawback, of course, is no compression; but for a small
image that shouldn't be a problem.

NOTE that for someone sufficiently persistent, they could still
pattern-match the generated image to retrieve the number and
auto-register that way.  (I could write a PHP file to do that, too :-)
