I'd approach this in a different way (besides educating people about the
proper use of MIME types of course):
create a viewer script for application/octet-stream which saves its input in
a temporary file, runs
	file -b thetempfile | magic2mime
to determine the proper MIME type, and then view it using the "see" program
from mime-utils.

Tevens ben ik van mening dat Nederland overdekt dient te worden.
