A Perl 6 library that reads the mime.types file as used by
many Linux distributions, and web servers, and returns an object
that can be queried by either type or extension.


  use MIME::Types;
  my $mime ="/etc/mime.types");
  my $type = $mime.type('txt'); ## Returns: 'text/plain';
  my @known_extensions = $mime.extensions('application/');
  ## Returns: [ 'xls', 'xlb', 'xlt' ]

An example mime.types is included in the doc/ directory, and is used by
the tests in t/.
