Replace the current mime-type support with the shared-mime-info database.

The idea here is to have a list of (mime-type-string => parser-function-pointer). The mime-type logic will then:
1/ build the RDF metadata for the supported document and audio mime-types using the mime-type database;
2/ use the magic detection logic from the mime-type database;
3/ use the XML namespace root and local-name from the mime-type database for XML documents.

Items 2 and 3 will be used as part of the handler lookup to get the parser function. The parser function will then be called to handle the data.

In some cases (email; mht; epub), this will involve recursive calls.

For the OCF handler, the information will need to be returned as RDF metadata to unify the parser interface.
