Joris feels that using John Barber's libjpeg patch is an inferior, perhaps wholly unneccesary, step towards my ambition.

I'd like to stress though that I don't think John Barber's solution is inferior all by itself. I mean, if the goal is to spread ITULAB support over a great many deal of LibJpeg users, and the solution gets incorporated in the official LibJpeg, it may even be the single most correct solution!

All I'm saying is that it's not a solution at all in LibTiff, because a) it ties ITULAB support in JPEG compression, and b) it further pollutes hacks and complications that come from subcodecs delivering data essentially different from what is specified in the IFD.

I hope I didn't offend John, because that was not at all the intention of what I said.

Best regards,

Joris Van Damme
