Roundabout, rather.  I am not sure what his point is,
but FWIW.

Well, just entered mpegurl video into google and
saw your mail.
Dont know how to contribute else, I signed
geocrawler, that monitors the new-httpd list of
apache, as far as I understand it.

Ok, as you have allready heard of this "vendor
MIME type for a shellscript", Oliver Fromme wrote
2.0, there is a new URL, with some random
filelists (and a game, grepping Borroughs
electronic revolution, if you interested in such
weirdness). Basically new is how to configure
Windows 98. There is a description how to do the
necessary changes to the Windows registry
via the Netscape, Edit, Preferences, Navigator,
Applications dialog.
It works with IE too. You have sotosay to
"translate" the MIME type, Microsoft *does*
support MIME (somehow), to a hardcoded "well known
extension" like m3u , the client side extension
for MPEG audio filelists. But we dont have to care
about this, client side extensions and server side
extensions are not the same.

Dont know what you do in the apache team. Shure,
everybody can change his mime.types file himself,
no problem. But the knowledge
about MIME is minimal. Even on, a
server administered by Thomax of, there
is audio/mpegurl instead of audio/x-mpegurl in
apache (dont know yet where).

Please rethink it ;-)
