Interesting: does this happen implicitly within the file crawler
(i.e. not the other backends), or explicitly via the other backends (say
the KMailQueryable)? Because if it's implicit, might as well back out
whatever I'm doing for the Gnus backend and work on MIME type
detection. :)

P.S. I haven't really read a whole lot of the current Beagle codebase,
so forgive me if the answer lies there -- I'm reading it while sending
this out.
