New submission from bpypy <python at bzx2.com>:
An obvious use case for mimetypes would be to check if file has correct mimetype, by getting the type with some of libmagic wrappers, and then comparing to guess_type result.
But it seems that they don't always match. One example:
applicattion/rar vs application/x-rar
Kills half the usefullness of the module.
