I'd prefer not to do this. Most of your changes to the magic.mime file
seem to be a matter of preference (changing mime-types, (un)commenting
entries), and would be better discussed with the file maintainer to make
sure mime-types are consistent all over.
The other change appears to be the removal of "string/c" and "string/B"
type entries. Would it not be better for us to just patch PHP to learn
how to deal with these, rather than fork magic.mime?
