Basically, the mimetypes module is fragile and very confusing code, 
built up over years of feature creep without refactoring or careful 
overall design. I'd like to cut it down to a more manageable code size, 
fix some bugs, update the included list of mime types, and use some nice 
Python features of versions 2.2+. Ideally someone reading the module 
once through would be able to understand what it does.

Patches to be attached shortly.
