That's why we use it :-)

BTW, mailcap is supposed to support "cookies" such that and
application can set a cookie when using mailcap to determine
a viewer. The mailcap mechanism in turn would then allow
definition of several viewers per mime type differentiated
by cookies. That way it would be possible to define a
cookie, say, "gnumed viewer" and have some files displayed
differently from within GNUmed than from elsewhere in the
system. This is supposably doable on a per-mimetype basis.

If you find out what we need to do to support this mechanism
I'd be happy to implement it.

sure it is any good. It doesn't seem FOSS either.
