One could do this with an Xastir instance hooked to an internet
feed, set up to do snapshots every XX minutes.  Feed that snapshot
to an Apache web server and you've got it.

Can't do that though.  One would need a web page form that then
generated APRS packets which would then get injected into the local
Xastir server port.  Not terribly hard to do, but someone would need
to code up the HTML and a CGI script (perhaps Perl).
