You can use rox(1) for this <http://rox.sf.net>, it uses the mime-info
database and allows you to define handler scripts for each mime- or
media-type. There is also a perl module called File::MimeInfo::Rox on
CPAN <http://cpan.org> that mimics this behaviour.

Maybe this functionality could be made into a spec - Thomas ?
