No, epeg is dead, even more dead than imlib2.  I think the current
replacement library from the E project for both these libraries
is the "evas" library.  I had plans to convert phoghorn to evas
someday (and make an evas egg), but I don't currently use phoghorn

I think you could easily hack out the epeg bits; imlib2 supports
jpeg as well, I think.

"The process of preparing programs for a digital computer
 is especially attractive, not only because it can be economically
 and scientifically rewarding, but also because it can be an aesthetic
 experience much like composing poetry or music."
