After discussions earlier on this list about how it would be useful to have
an XML Mime sniffer for Apache, I went ahead and coded one. Unfortunately it
uses mod_perl, so it's not going to be the best solution for everyone, but
it works for me :-)

It allows you to return any mime type you like, you can even configure that
on a per-directory basis, and it defaults to application/xml. It correctly
detects utf-16. I've tested it on a number of different encoded XML files,
although obviously not every XML file going. There are bound to be bugs, but
this is a first stab at getting something that works.

Anyway, it should be on CPAN rsn, for the impatient you can get it at
