Yes, I specifically didn't mention g-vfs as I don't want to depend on
most gnome libs it brings in. So what I gather there's no single
preferred lib for mimehandling in xfce as gnome-vfs is in gnome.
I'll see which of thunar's or xfce4gui's is best for my use and whether
thei're better than libmagic.
