JBIG2 compression in TIFF was only recently added as an extension to the 
TIFF/IT spec via an ISO addendum to TIFF/IT.   As far as I'm aware, no 
attempt has been made yet to support it in tifflib (if anyone is 
thinking about this, I'd like to talk to them, as I'm interested in 
supporting it in SwiftView - just as we already support JBIG2 in PDF.)

As with any other bitonal compression standard, non-bitonal images must 
be converted to bitonal before you can compress with JBIG2.
