Well, not really (except you are a developer). Or may I switch the hexedit 
KPart back to handle all/files again? ;)

Better than noting or some source viewer/editor would be an appropriate 
message "Please install some app to deal with this file type. Or choose on of 
the apps which can show you at least the source." with an hook for 
distributions to plugin their installation voodo (by some generic 
installation KPart interface, for example).
