[web-devel] Simple mime-type package

Hi all,

In Yesod, I have very modest needs when it comes to mime-types. Basically, I

* a data type to represent mime-types
* convert a string to a mime-type
* convert a mime-type to a string
* determine mime-type of a file based on extension

I've stuck all this in a simple module: Web.Mime[1]. However, it seems like
this is a perfect candidate for a dedicated package. So I wanted to ask:

1) Is there a package out there- with minimal dependencies- that supplies
this functionality?
2) If not, would anyone else find it useful if I split this off into its own
