Plots in IPython are in png by default, and if you have thin lines in a sketch or whatever produces by tikz, then JPG is not going to look good anyway... I might just overlook something, but to me, JPG doesn't appear an extremely useful format in the present case, unless, you are really concerned about file size.

Well, the default format in my module is PNG as well. I was just following the OctaveMagics example which also features JPG (for whatever reason). But I fully agree, PNG and SVG are much more useful than JPG.
