Sure, but you can disable the lossy part and still get
some compression from cosine transformation & LZ.

removing the quantization part and only keeping the DCT + RLE will IMO give poor results when not applied to rather "high" resolution images (ie : not 320x200 or 640x400) and/or photographic images.

For emulator like images, where you often have strong transitions between color from one pixel to another, you will most likely get rather "blocky" results when you use lossy compression, and not very good compression ratio if you go lossless, as jpeg is more appropriate to region of pixels with transition between colors (hence the DCT usage) than to planar graphics where pixels have sometimes no relation to each other (especially on older machine like ST where you only add 7 level of intensity per color)
