release notes:

  Starting in 2010, Guile-WWW modules will no longer export data; i.e.,
  exported procs yes, exported data no.  Practically, this means that
  the proc `(www server-utils filesystem) filename->content-type' now
  uses the public alist from module `(www data content-type)' to init
  the internal table, but will no longer after 2009-12-31.  This is for
  temporary backward compatibility (previously, it consulted that alist

  If you have code that uses `filename->content-type', you should
  future-proof it by initializing the table yourself, like this:

    ((www server-utils filesystem) #:select (filename->content-type))
    ((www data mime-types) #:select (reset-mime-types!

  ;; Init the table.  The strange first call triggers internal init.
  ;; It can be removed safely after 2009, but leaving it in is harmless.
  (filename->content-type "")
  (reset-mime-types! 491)
  (put-mime-types-from-file! 'stomp "/etc/mime.types")

  ttn musings:
  - The hash-table niceties in module (www data mime-types) should
    probably be generalized and merged into module (ice-9 mapping) in
    Guile, ... but not before the re-introduction of Pascal strings
  - Even more tasty is the `scm-error' wrapper.  Minimally, Guile-WWW
    itself should move away from calling `error' directly, preferring
    typed throws.  Error index (doc) can then be autosnarfed.

  Happy new year(s)!
