Starting from scratch would be possibly the best anyway. I had it also on my todo list on
a very low priority ... but just, because I found that jMimeMagic has a really worse implemenattion
- extremly slow and not working correctly. I have a good pile of image files it does not detect.
Main reason is, that the implementation is simply wrong. The original magic files have a clear
idea of precedence of patterns - this has been lost completely in the conversion/implementation
of jMimeMagic.
