First of all, thanks for the quick fixes.  I've pushed a pu/ branch to
my GitLab clone.  I also added some minor fixups to the documentation.

With respect to the jpeg vs jpg issue, in the end I thought it better to
align the behaviour with the current TIFF implementation.  The --format
option now takes jpeg and the file extension for batch scan is jpg.

We can think about allowing common file extension as alternatives for
the file format option later.

Users will probably welcome support for these image file formats.  No
more "clumsy" piping PNM into one of the netpbm utilities anymore!

Please consider merging the pu/scanimage-png-jpeg-v4 branch from my
GitLab clone[1] to Alioth's master.
