[uldmcocx] Markov chain GIF

Create software that allows a collection of animations, e.g., movies or animated GIFs, to be chained together in a Markov chain.  Specify a graph of states, transition probabilities between states, and a start state.  The chain could go on forever, or stop when it gets to a state with no exit.

Could be an addictive form of entertainment, where the viewer waits for rarely occurring transitions.

There may be opportunities for video compression in which one animation could be similar to another animation in the collection, perhaps overlays.

Audio also.
