  C is not a subset of C++ (let me point to Mr. Stroustrup who should know it :) https://web.archive.org/web/20080617183013/http://www.research.att.com/~bs/bs_faq.html#C-is-subset )
  The inheritance in sthe shared-mime-info is actually done as a hacky workaround for pattern-based magic failing to properly detect the MIME type, see

  Agreed, that's what my current patch tries to do.
