«should be easy to add. The hard part is to determine if we html or css was
submitted. In Unicorn, we do that using a dropdown list of mimetypes, but here
it should be possible to guess the type from the content»

When using upload, we would also have a media type. So the absence of media
type would only be a proble for "direct input". There, heuristics to guess
whether the content is CSS or HTML might be a tad tricky (think of the cases
where people put html-style comments in CSS stylesheets...) but feasible.
