PyMagick is a Python interface to the powerful, cross-platform ImageMagick
graphics package, which supports JPEG2000 through an external library.  
So unlike something like PIL, you'd also need to install ImageMagick
(compiled with JPEG2000 support) and a JPEG2000 library, but it seems to
be very well integrated with Python, PIL, and numeric.

Hope this helps.
