I can follow. Your jpeg_image_file_reader could also serve another
function that is to give the user access to the backend.

I have been thinking about this use case and I think one good idea is
have an input iterator returned by the io extension. The user would
set up the strides to read which can be in scanlines or tiles. Once
the iterator is retrieved the operator++() would read the next
