Re: mailcap configuration in zsh can't open .bk files

The documentation would imply that it is therefore sufficient to put the
pdf.pk rule in ~/.mime.types, run zsh-mime-setup, and then add

    alias -s bk=zsh-mime-handler

Quote from the doc:

    ... Alternatively, if no handling
   for .gz on its own is needed, simply adding the command

       alias -s gz=zsh-mime-handler

    to the initialisation code is sufficient; .gz will not be handled
    on its own, but may be in combination with other suffixes.

Is this not accurate, or am I misinterpreting it somehow?
