i don't see why.  as a test, i renamed my image file back to .jpg,
and had the credit refer to it by that suffix.  the jpg file was,
in fact, copied under the build directory by precisely that name,
but the page source that was generated referred to the non-existent
file blah.jpg.jpeg, which does not exist anywhere in either the
src or build directory.  ergo, no graphic was displayed on the

OTOH, as soon as i renamed the image file to .jpeg, that was
how the file was named in both the src and build directories, which
agreed with the credit link and everyone (including me) was happy.

as best i can tell, forrest *really* doesn't like .jpg suffixes
and arbitrarily appends a .jpeg suffix to the filename, causing
bad things to happen.
