There are several beagle/chooser-fu/xdgmime* c/header files (probably
written by Jon Trowbridge but not touched for 17 months!) Looks like
they were writen to create beagle-aware GtkFileChooser. What do the
xdg*.{c,h} files actually do ? Can they be used to port gnomevfs
mime-detection to xdgmime ?
