Wild and crazy idea #37:

Why not generate the rounded corners, anti-aliased even, as images created on 
the fly?  If GD is compiled in, use that.  If not, how hard can it be to write 
the algorithm in fine-tuned PHP code?  It can be done in all integer math, 
although that's probably not the slow part of doing this.
