Well.  I'm all for removing the patterns (not much use for me since all my
core dumps end up in one directory anyhow), however not everyone using KDE
uses ELF binaries.  Certainly Darwin users don't, and probably won't,
ever.  Then there's NetBSD, I believe some of the platforms it supports
still use a.out.. I'm unsure about OpenBSD.  I'm sure there are signatures
for all those core dumps, can our mimemagic stuff handle that?
