Whoa, sarcasm.  It's SOOOOOO appreciated :)

This all goes back to the "don't break things" approach that I took when I
wrote this originally.  Maybe it's time to revisit it.  It's a complex issue
because of the linkage between mime types and helper applications.  I used
what was there which comes from mhshow.  No real objection to changing it
althout /etc/mime.types may not exist on all systems.  Also, there are
probably considerable differences in choices of helper applications.
