Sorry, I was thinking about the file extension and its mapping onto a MIME type.

That's another issue: in Windows just about everything is driven by
extensions, in Unix you need something like 'file' to have a quick
peek under the hood, checking binary signatures etc.  These different
philosophies make a cross-platform solution an interesting challenge.
