It would make a lot of sense to add entries to auto-mode-alist so as to open
*.xpm and *.xbm in "c-mode + image-minor-mode".  Similarly, postscript-mode
(c|sh)ould automatically turn on image-minor-mode.

I prefer scheme number 3, of course: it's the simplest of all.

Also users know how to tweak auto-mode-alist to get the mode they want for
specific files, and we've already seen several people annoyed/surprised that
it doesn't work when the mode is detected by magic-mode-alist, so I think
that as much as possible we should stick to using only auto-mode-alist.
