Why couldn't they just use MIME types to decide which plugin to use to open
each stream. Plugin programmers could include a list of MIME types that
the plugin handles, and they could store that in a hash of some sort. Upon
detecting a new available plugin, it queries the plugin for it's MIME
types, and rebuilds the hash.
Would this not be the simplest way?
Am I missing something?
