Well, the simple answer is 'yes', but you'll need to give more info
about _how_ you want to do it (e.g. how would the markup look on the
FE if there were no CMS involved?)

For one possibility, have a look at my bhfirobject extension [1]--it
makes a one-level unordered-list menu that uses css to hide the text
and display gifbuilder images for normal, rollover and active states.
The object it renders is almost entirely TS, but there is a little bit
of php used to return the sizes of the images for use in the css.

If you do try it, be prepared to write a lot of TS as the default
implementation is pretty basic (and probably the TS I used is not as
smart as it could be--though it could be useful to you as an example
of building images for differnt rollover states in TS).
