This paragraph confuses me :)
Here is where i think the file -> properties window gets it's info:
1. Type: <shared-mime-type>
<shared-mime-descriptive-name (or target if symlink)>
2. Run action: <decide-by-shared-mime-type>
3. Contents indicate...
Is this correct? Where does the gnome-vfs stuff fit in?
Still, i don't know which entries in the shared-mime database take
precedence. Is it content match in order of supplied precedence values
and file extension afterwards?
