Is there a libtiff which writes old JPEG format?  If so, it must be 
really old (3.5.6?).  The Adobe technical note which describes new 
JPEG format is dated 2002.  Libtiff 3.9.0 and later provide decent 
support for reading old JPEG format.

There are no future plans for libtiff to write old JPEG format.
