    It seems that modes get chosen by auto-mode-alist rather than
    interpreter-mode-alist, even if the file is executable and has a
    magic number.  I feel this to be wrong!

Maybe you're right, but I'd like to think about it.  Could you
describe the case in which this caused trouble for you?

    Likewise I keep stumbling over XML files, with all kinds of misleading
    suffixes.  It would be way cool if any file that starts with <?xml be
    automatically in xml-mode or html-mode.

What suffixes do these XML files have, and why do they have them?
