I took an alternative approach (because building two iframes and so on
seemed really complicated to me.
I opened the SVG, and looked at it in Dragonfly, which showed me the path
used to create the spiral. Export DOM and I have an SVG element.
Double the width, make the path a def, and <use> it twice side by side
with clipping to suit. (As a child of the 70's I would make them round...)
Set an animation for the rotate (although that doesn't work in IE9 so you
should use fakeSMIL or something).
To get the direction change I would like to use a <set> and animate the by
attribute of the animation, but I don't know if that works because I
didn't worry about trying it.
(This is similar to using <set> for script-free buttons. One button is
drawn over the other, and I <set> display none when it is clicked, ending
when the button underneath gets clicked. Then I can trigger whatever else
I want from the clicking of the two buttons. Or cascade them for multiple
states, which isn't that much harder. It's nothing special, but it stops
