I did this initially. Then I removed "-xcf" from the mimetypes list 
(using the digiKam options in the UI) in order to load in the XCF files.

My specific question is:  In what digiKam or other "rc" file are the 
additions and removals from the mime types stored?

Having to recreate the digiKam database from scratch just to change the 
mimetypes is a bit overkill. So it would be nice to be able to just open 
the text file in which the mimetype settings are stored, edit a line, 
and then restart digiKam.
