There used to be, but I doubt it was retained. I don't think it has been
used for a decade.

Basically, you do this:

	<input type=hidden name=mv_click_map value="aclickit aclackit atisket atasket">

	<input type=image name="mv_click.aclickit" src="logo.gif">
	<input type=image name="mv_click.aclackit" src="logo.gif">
	<input type=image name="mv_click.atisket" src="logo.gif">
	<input type=image name="mv_click.atasket" src="logo.gif">

You should find that clicking the appropriate image will submit
mv_click.aclickit.x to come into the CGI variable stream, which will
cause the "aclickit" click to be run. Each image will cause a
different mv_click to run.
