And perhaps ever. The thing about objects, such as swf, is that the HTML
renderer has no innate idea of what to do with an object, other than
hand it over to another program (or part of the browser code). Image
setting a Flash *application* as background--there would be no way to
get to the controls.
Animated backgrounds with gifs is sort of an "end-run": a gif is a
graphic, and the hooks are already there to animate it, so unless you're
Opera, might as well make it work in the background also.
