Another solution would be to store the Content-type along with the attachment in Apache .asis format. The .asis format is really kinda nice - I've been playing with animated PNG files by cat'ing several PNG "frames" into a single .asis file with appropriate Content-type between each frame. A person can even combine multiple attachments into a single file this way.
