That's funny for a few reasons.  First off, MIME type is based on the
filename on the server anyhow...  Second, MIME type is usually less
reliable than the filename suffix.  And finally, I haven't yet found a
filemanager (for Unix or Windows) that will decide what program to open
a file with, based upon it's contents rather than name.
