140 seems pretty extreme. Most tests I've run put numeric calculations
at around 10-20 times slower, not 140.
A better answer as to why there isn't a pure python module is because
there already exists numerous C JPEG libraries, which are much easier to
wrap with SWIG, than to rewrite completely in Python.
