     No, I have only registry entries for .por .sav en .sps files. On MSWindows
     this is usually done by the file extension.  So what should I register?

In the file importer filter we currently have the following mime types.

 ( I've never encountered   this last one, but it's listed here: )

In the not too distant future, I'm hoping to extend this gui to also import
the following mime types, so you might want to deal with these too:

     When registering something with the .csv files, I may get problems with
     office packages also registering *.csv files.

Why?  This would only be a problem if those packages associate the extension 
with something other than "text/csv"
     On my MSWindows test environment, only .txt files are correct filtered in
     the import box.
     Have fun
