Well, I think that misclassified parts are rife, it would be nice to
have some way to deal with them nonetheless. One simple option would
be to have some kind of 'view as text anyway' option for parts that
you think are text.

Cooler would be a 'file'-type autoguesser.  Is there a version of
'file' which outputs mime-types?  That would be very cool.
