Yes, I saw your message.  Sounds like this could help get Unicode support into
Apache faster, with some performance hits.  Have you checked what Martin Kramer
is doing with mod_ebcdic? Seems like there's some commonality - you may be able
to reuse some of his code.

mmm sounds like the right place to put that function - it already is looking at
the file contents to determine the mime type.  mmm isn't being banished - I
simply took it out of the list of mods that are included by default with the
binary builds, so that a user would need to enable it explicitly.  However, in
light of your work, other concerns, and my desire to get started on 2.0, I will
back off from that patch and submit another which only affects OS/390.
