How can kdelibs ship all mimes out there? Btw. KDE could know about it, it
complains about missing entries from .desktop files building the system 
config cache. So there is a chance to add it and link it to the application.

Or adding one w/o translations? (Alternative is KDE not recognizing the files
you get by mail if you don't have the right KDE package or .. :-))
