If it were me, I would just make it an animated .gif file.

With a 256 colors limit it would look terrible. An animated .png file could do, but the size will be giant. And as it's not a standard, only Opera & Firefox can handle it.

i'll just gonna swap out the image on a regular basis. i'm not so excited about animated images, especially in such prominent positions. they are in general not considered good style.

Another idea :
I'm sure  you know  tool named personas for mozilla utilities.

And why not run a contest for create an personas of Simutrans ?

Second another idea ;-)
Do you know  apng fomat a non offcial png format ( possibilities to animate a png with his layers)
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animated_Portable_Network_Graphics
If you use latest versions of firefox these runs ( browser Opera too)
I tested few months ago creating animated personas with apng Edit plugin
