I'm with Roy. This is a Bad Idea. There are very good reasons to have
paramaters on content types (charset, for example). This is not a good
reason to strip them all off.

A better idea might be to simply make a "DefaultQuality image/gif 0.5"
directive. Shouldn't be that hard. (look at where it sets the quality for
CGI scripts - put it in there).
