file (at least on all the systems I've seen) doesn't
recognize FLAC files. It'd be nice if flac had a magic
number registered with file. Unfortunately, I don't
know if there is a master central magic number
might count as such.
Right now, MP3 shows up as:
$ file ww1.mp3
ww1.mp3: MP3, 128 kBits, 44.1 kHz, Stereo
It'd be neat if something similar happened for flac.
