Edward,

I would note that the JPEG_DUAL_MODE support is for both 8bit and 12bit
jpeg in tiff.  It is unrelated to "old jpeg" mode.  The effort is
discussed at:

   http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/TIFF12BitJPEG

It requires the latest libjpeg code from the libjpeg.sourceforge.net
cvs repository which may be considered a fork outside of the
independent jpeg group of jpeg 6b for maintenance purposes.

It is desirable to better describe this functionality in the libtiff
docs if there is interest; however, outside the geospatial community I
haven't heard of much interest in 12bit jpeg in tiff.

Best regards,
