It would of course always be possible to delete the image from a previous
execution by using a script. e.g. something like this.   Let's call this
script image.sh


# Delete any previous image
rm /tmp/tmpImg.gif

# Create a new image at /tmp/tmpImg.gif
... ... ..

# Set it to be displayed
echo "TAPIR%%IMAGE=/tmp/tmpImg.gif%%"

Then you would just set this script to be executed by Tapir, by bundling
the script, and making Tapir's command './image.sh'.
