ImageMagick can indeed do 99% of what bemps can do, but it requires
some non-obvious (to me) command line parameters. The only thing it
cannot do compared to bemps w.r.t. PDF generation is to use multiple
(piped) /Filter commands for the included image. See these
discussion(s) on ImageMagick mailing list:
So, I don't have a compelling reason to package bmeps anymore.
