Ugg...  That's too bad.

I'll investigate this option.

For this change, would you prefer that we go for a cross-platform
implementation or would a Chromium-only implementation be more expedient?  I
think Chromium is the only the port that needs this data today, but other ports
will need it in the future if they want to implement the HTML 5 content
sniffing algorithm.

(Thanks for explaining this all to me, by the way.)
