Which still don't necessarily map to the behavior of every single file
manager; some of them come with their own rules (heck, even mc does
that IIRC), some rely on /usr/bin/file. Plus, the solution needs to be
portable. It's really non-trivial, and the the current approach taken
by Firefox works only in rudimentary cases.
