I need to change the default. I don't want it switched on by default, as
it has to know where to find your "file" command and what sort of output
it produces.
Just reset it to /usr/bin/file again and you'll be fine.

I'm not sure what to set the default to, it's a bit awkward. I guess I
could enable it by default, and just not squeal too loudly if the file
can't be found.
What do you think?
