Long story short, this should not be an issue for OpenSlide, since you
pretty much require direct file access, so fread should be pretty
cheap (ideally would need an fseek instead).

The issue I was thinking of when I added my comment was:

Again this is OT here, but even if #94 gets fixed other part of code
will need to be updated. Right now OpenJPEG requires enormous amount
of memory if you request the bottom-right pixel, which makes OpenSlide
pretty much useless for JPEG2000/WSI.
