(With the intention to distract from the fruitless 
license discussion: We will not accept AGPL contributions 
and we won't encourage you to start an AGPL fork.)

No, FFmpeg contains a native Jpeg 2000 codec. I don't 
remember it being slow but it has missing features and 
it would be great if you worked on it. See trac (or the 
conformance samples) for examples for decoder problems, 
the encoder does not compress good enough.
