If you do that, then Evolution, and any other app that uses the MIME db,
will transparently start handling executables too.

You make a good point showing how little I thought about the issue.
And look again like a dumb rock by not being able to walk the entire
chain of thought. 

But I think that we can still implement this for Nautilus, while
keeping Evolution safe.  The trick is to make Evolution treat
specially the `application/x-executable' MIME type.  

It makes sense to do treat this in Evolution as a special case since
Evolution and mail will be the target of attacks anyways, and we can
not trust information that has been sent to us.
