In some sense, we're ahead of you here. The 3.2 code has a file://
transport method, which already uses a mime.types file. The catch is
that the local_urls feature currently doesn't use this code at all,
instead using the same code as in 3.1.5. Obviously it would be useful
to translate local_urls directives into file:// URLs for this purpose.

Interesting idea. Of course no other mime.types support works this
way, so we couldn't easily use a standard mime.types file.
