why not? You don't have to parse the XML twice ...

OK, but as usual: I have current time constraints ... the code where I needed mime detection
has been finished some time ago and I need a better reason before I touch it again. I'll have
a look.

IIRC LGPL is meanwhile fine for a dependency, so no problem.

Well, in this case at least a dual license with ASF license 2.0 would be helpful. Also the
code will have to run through the incubation process. But I believe the project should gain
some more community first, because a project without it, will not be accepted easily. And
it seems I am currently the only Apache committer involved in this thread. So you should wait
for a bigger user and active committer base. Additionally Apache does not release officially
0.x versions here, so I would reconsider a move to Apache if you're heading 1.0 and the API
has somewhat finalized.
