Know only oold macs. there each file knows its programm, there is
no distinction by type. a normal web-server does not tell this special info.
but if you do [write %file.r read %file.r] rebol adds this information
afaik. so maybe a script to search directories and patch *.r-scripts
could help. also rebol has special modes to access mac-forks
and should be able to set the start-programm explicitely.
but then modern macs should have settings somewhere how to associate
mime-types/file-extensions from foreign systems?
find and change them..
