I am not especially excited about it. The fact that some mime-types
are hard coded, and others are not is an annoying 'inconsistency'.
There is no way to extend the list of supported types in user apps.
And typeByExt has a rather limited set up extensions, declaring
everything else to be application/octet-stream.
The use of a type for the mime-types implies that you want to be
pattern matching on the constructors in your code ? Can you give a use
case for that ?
