[ramk@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx: Bug#339635: zsh: zsh-mime-handler used even in the case of executable files]

Another patch from R.Ramkumar for which I hold no opinion.

Subject: Bug#339635: zsh: zsh-mime-handler used even in the case of executable files

Package: zsh
Version: 4.2.5-22
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Some scripts end with a .sh (a common example being autogen.sh). For
such scripts, zsh-mime-handler ends up executing the mime action for
the suffix sh, which sometimes happens to be to just display the
file. This, I guess is due to alias -s, which blindly maps in case
the suffix matches. To counter this, it would be good if
zsh-mime-handler uses a style to take a set of patterns that would
be executed as-is, despite having a suffix found in the mime
configuration. I am enclosing a patch for the same. I have made the
set of executable files as the default for this style, I hope this
deviation from the original behaviour is acceptable.

Hope this helps :)
