It would literally be five minutes of dev time.  But I'm not sure it's 
the ideal solution since often you want a hotspot to exceed the formal 
bounds of an object, and this wouldn't do that.

Still, I'll code it up and see how it works.

Probably best to just fool around with Raphael.js or some such library 
to see what it does, and see what can be ported.
