New submission from Walter Arrighetti <riemann.chaos at gmail.com>:

In the Digital Intermediate (DI) post-production world, as well as in
digital cinema/film technologies, video frames -especially those coming
from a film scanner- are stored in sequences of image files, whose two
primary formats are the Digital Picture Exchange (DPX,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DPX) and the Kodak Cineon
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cineon).
This proposal of lines addiction only to imghdr module allows to
properly test DPX and Cineon files for validity, with imghdr.what()
returning either 'dpx' or 'cin' strings if either is found.
