in windows shell(s) files (filetypes!!!) are recognized by extensions 
not mimetypes - i think that makes a problem: .sla.gz files can be 
handled by scribus and linux' (also macos?) shells/window managers as 
mimetypes but you cannot create filetype with miltipart ext in windows, 
so you cannot handle it through shell.
i didn't try gzipped sla docs (and didn't know the discussion about 
format extensions) - that is why i proposed - here and now - new ext, 
which can be handled by windows
(i hope you can understand what i wrote, in spite of that terrible 
grammatic errors etc; i'm afraid, i have to re-learn english... sorry ;)
