   If you do this then watching the generated html won't work for 99% of all 
   people. If you read the html locally (with a file:// url) the browser uses 
   the suffix to determine mime-type.

That's my point -- that's what happens right now.  What *should*
happen is that the JPEG file that's generated should be named foo.jpg,
not foo.png.

   If served over the web, most web-servers do the same. (a very few migth use 
   mod_magic which determines the mime-type by file-content rather than name, 
   for those very few it'd work.)
