I suggested setting up:

audio and video'.

but I like setting up a new MIME type for mcast-session because it is
nominally less operating-system dependent than a `x-csh' type.

Oh, I suppose one could do a 'vsafecsh' for Windows that actually only
special cases a couple of shell commands, but it seems wrong to load
it all into one media type.
