not in 1.0b1.  it's on the list for a future version (probably
not 1.0 final, which is essentially frozen by now).

if you really need this feature now, you have to hack
libImaging/JpegDecode.c yourself (it might work to just
comment out "state->errcode = IMAGE_CODEC_BROKEN"
in the ImagingJpegDecode function...).
