libjpeg has an odd upstream.  We needed some build fixes to be
included for the Windows cross-compiler, but found the current
upstream to be unresponsive (although at least they're making releases

If we're going to switch, maybe this is a good choice.

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
