ITP: jpeg2ps


Does anyone package "jpeg2ps"?
If not so, I ITP this software.
 Package: jpeg2ps
 Version: 1.8-1
 Section: non-free/graphics
 Priority: optional
 Architecture: i386
 Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1)
 Installed-Size: 42
 Maintainer: Kenshi Muto <kmuto@debian.org>
 Description: Convert JPEG compressed images to PostScript Level 2
  jpeg2ps converts JPEG files to PostScript Level 2 or 3 EPS. In fact, jpeg2ps
  is not really a converter but a "wrapper": it reads the image parameters
  (width, height, number of color components) in a JPEG file, writes the
  according EPS header and then copies the compressed JPEG data to the output
  file. Decompression is done by the PostScript interpreter (only PostScript
  Level 2 and 3 interpreters support JPEG compression and decompression).
  If you have a slow communication channel and a fast printer, sending
  compressed image data is a big win.

It was downloaded from http://www.pdflib.com/jpeg2ps/index.html
