Yes, the timings will definitely be lower with the current driver, as it
doesn't take full advantage of some library features
1. tile cache
2. multi-threading across tiles
3. combination of memory mapping and PLT markers, where parts of
the codestream that don't need to be decoded are not even read from disk at
There's no reason why JP2Grok can't match the library utilities in
performance, once I support
the above features in the driver.

I can certainly benchmark this.
