Yes, I can, but since Gnome thinks .rm files are text/plain, it then
proceeds to try and open _all_ _text/plain_ _files_ with Realplayer.
Which is kind of stupid.  I need a way to stop Gnome from thinking .rm
files are text/plain.

I'd also benefit from the info how one changes Gnome's behaviour with
mimetypes in general, because I'd like to add a system-wide mimetype
for Zilog Z80 core images, too.
