Sorry, I meant auto-image-file-mode.

Currently the only one way to visit binary image files in image mode
is to enable auto image mode by auto-image-file-mode.  However, it
doesn't distinguish between ascii based and binary image formats and
enables auto image mode for ascii based image files too.  But it
is desirable to visit ascii based image files in text mode and
binary image files in image mode.

There should a separate variable with a list of extensions of
binary formats (or ascii image formats) to be able after visiting
an image file to display it either as an image or as text, without
the explicit need to type C-c C-c.
