KDE Developers don't test their own programs...

I agree with all your points - KDE (and free software - any software, 
actually) is far from perfect.  I only had a couple of comments/questions:

I agree here - it should handle newlines.  I actually think that's part of the 
csv standard...

I still don't understand why you would want to change a MIME type...a file is 
what it is.  You can open it with different applications - but that still 
doesn't change what it is.  An image is an image no matter what - you can 
open it in different programs (and using the kontrol center, you can 
configure what the default program is), but it's still an image.

I think it's part of kdegraphics.
