For speed? Sure, using the bistream read is horrible. But I consider
rtjpeg a legacy format - until a short time ago it would not even work
on 64 bit and big endian platforms (at least in MPlayer) - so not
considered for "serious" but only for playing old files left over from
earlier times.
So if you don't overly mind, I'm for keeping with the bitstream reader
for simplicity.
