Actually I don't know if JPEG supports transparency ... I don't think  
it does.  This means that you could use JPEG only for the base layer  
group or mutually exclusive groups.  You can mix types and use JPEG  
for the bottom layer and GIF or regular PNG for the others.

See the wiki on details for setting per-layer image formats.
