      Description

        The javax.imageio JPEG plugin has code for supporting color spaces
        which are optional according to the JPEG Plugin Metadata section
        of the Image I/O specification.
        Support for this is not present in OpenJDK and relies on
        proprietary extensions to the IJG JPEG library.
        One consequence is that the JPEG plugin in OpenJDK reports
        it can write images with an alpha channel but in fact throws
        an exception when asked to do so.

        We should update or remove the code as appropriate
