Yep, it has. Works perfectly for me with ps images going through gs to an
Epson Stylus Color 600, but I won't pretend it didn't take some banging
for me to get to that point.

This is sort of a guess, but in my magic filter filter file I see the line
0 \377\330\377\340\?\?JFIF\0 pipe /usr/bin/djpeg -pnm
which inspires me to think that a program called djpeg does the job. It
strikes me as being possible that dvips provides a way to pass this sort
of stuff on to the filter as well, which has capabilities (fpipe) for
re-piping parts of the file through again, but I doubt it would be worthe
the effort, as you will want to see what it looks like as a ps image
anyway before including it. Good luck.
