It's also a pain when I have to make the file immutable to keep the system updates from toasting the changes every few months. Replacing this file is really just a band-aid for a better workaround within MS to combat the FP's (IMHO).
Which is partly why I wrote the MIME type support for 
filetype.rules.conf files in the first place, as it detects some file 
types a lot more reliably.
