Actually, it shouldn't be that hard to at least try. If the
quantization tables used in an image correspond exactly (or "closely
enough") to those produced by libjpeg with some setting of
jpeg_set_quality(), it would be nice if GIMP remembered that as the
default quality to use for the file. Or something like that... One
might even consider keeping and re-using the original quantization
tables instead of using jpeg_set_quality() in case the quantization
tables don't seem to be produced by libjpeg.
