Re: new mime detection approach

Question: if you use sniffing for recognizing file types and I have a text file called myfile.jpg...if i double click it, then the file will be opened with gimp (for example) and not with gedit, also if the file is recognized as a "text file" by nautilus and has the appropriate icon and preview. So, why use sniffing if the applications are associated with extension? And if you like so much sniffing...why don't you make a customizable option? In "sniffing mode" nautilus will sniff, in "extension mode" nautilus will "recognize file types per extensions" and in "sniffing+extension mode" nautilus will use both of the methods with magic...

Why don't do that?
