Hi,

Currently we only sniff text/plain (in certain conditions, being  
there is no content-encoding headers and content-type is equal to one  
of "text/plain", "text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1", or "text/plain;  
charset=iso-8859-1") to see whether it is binary content or not.  
However, this poses issues for a large number of feeds that are  
served as text/plain: a notable example of this is <http:// 
youtube.com/rss/global/top_favorites.rss>.
