	Ok, *which* mimetypes?  There are mime files in ~/. and in
	various ~/.mozilla directories?  At least 2 in .mozilla--
	one for firefox, one for mozilla.  These are named 
	mimeTypes.rdf.  Be nice if firefox considered that thhere
	are a few of us old time CLI guys still around!

	With mozilla, there are places to type in specs about the
	"helper" apps; things such as files suffixed with ".smil"
	use realplay.  As do several other files.  Both realplay
	and mplayer can do everything (in theory); I've stuck
	with realplay.

	thanks, Dan, but I'm still lost.
