>2)  A new Gopher type, 'm', is to be implemented which tells a client to 
>the MIME type in the Gopher+ space.

As Cameron mentioned non-gopher+ clients won't be able to detect the MIME type.
But as long as we are talking about MIME for gopher+ we could add a new 
to the +ADMIN block which tells a gopher+ client the MIME-type:

    +INFO: 0read meF0/readme.txtFgopher.serverF70
     admin: ...
     lastmod: ...
     content-type: text/plain

MIME-types that have no direct gopher type mapping should be announced as
binary type `9' giving gopher0 clients the chance to make an arrangement
based on the extension, gopher+ clients should use the +ADMIN.content-type
