OK, I will add this into format documentation as well.

In order to have aspeed-jpeg format to work on openbmc's KVM, I was 
working on noVNC.
And this codec library is part of the code to make it work.

Before I put this source on github, I am not sure which kind of license 
is suitable. So I check
what noVNC used, https://github.com/novnc/noVNC/blob/master/LICENSE.txt. 
That's why I
adapted MPL 2.0.

If you think GPL(or LGPL) is more suitable, I can make a switch.
