I must preface this post by saying that I am not a javascript GURU,
altho I am reasonably familiar with javascript and have worked on some
enterprise-level systems which use it...

Essentially what I wish to do here is the following:

Given a start position in X/Y in pixels, lets call it start, and an
array of end points, end[0....N], I want to be able to draw animated
lines which originate from start and wend their way in an animated
fashon to each of the end points. The flashier and nicer the animation
here the better, and I have a lot of leeway as far as how the lines
are drawn. Any ideas? Thanks!
