Patch http://www.python.org/sf/554192 adds a function to
mimetypes.py that returns all known extensions for a mimetype,

 >>> import mimetypes
 >>> mimetypes.guess_all_extensions("image/jpeg")
['.jpg', '.jpe', '.jpeg']

Martin v. Loewis and I were discussing whether it would make
sense to make the helper method add_type (which is used for
adding a mapping between one type and one extension) visible
on the module level.

Any comments?
