Comment (by jessicah):

 Perhaps the most elegant solution would be to have the MIME DB physically
 stored on the BFS, rather than inside packagefs. You'd get the merging for
 free, and I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard to update the package daemon
 to update the real MIME DB as required?

 However, looking at some of the other comments above, I've modified the
 _CreateTypeNode to always set the BEOS & META type attributes for
 supertypes, since these follow a standard convention anyway. And now
 People attributes are available in Tracker!

 I don't know whether that's considered elegant or sufficient enough... but
 that's up to you guys to decide :)
