I insisted for 9 as the magic number since to me it seemed reasonable
to assume that any user could expect being allowed to map from one to
nine actions for a given filetype, considering the easily ordered
digits present on most keyboards (zero might be considered first, but
is in the wrong ordering place, or ten, but that's not very
intuitive). But then, I also assumed that there wasn't much overhead
extending this. In any case, six is already much useful.
