I think this depends heavily on the image type itself.  If you're getting it 
from source material (before JPEG's compression might have degraded the 
borders or introduced artifacts into solid-color blocks), and the image is 
"cartoony" (big blocks of not that many colors) instead of "photographic", I'm 
pretty sure you'd be better off with GIF, even if it were a large image.
