I was not aware we had such old mime.types file. By the way, this .jpe bug always
intrigued me, but no to the point of chasing it down.

I'm not sure if NGINX mime.types has anything that is required for it to function
properly. I can look into this, but if it doesn't, then both me and Bartłomiej, can
strip upstream's on our respective packages. How does fedora handles it?
