I've looked into implementing this feature and it is not as simple as it
seems. The hack you mention is precisely that: a hack, and a very cranky
one. AFAIK there is no way of implementing continous scrolling with
adjacent images if you care at all about robustness and user experience.
And the fact that people is asking for this feature for years and, to
this day, nobody implemented it, seems to confirm my impressions.
