How do you know it is intended to run from java? For all we know it should
be runned from another program, lynx or netscape. You can do this with
bytecodes because bytecode IS a binary format with its own signature. I
think we should leave this to user-spaced programs like midnight commander
to execute files based on the extensions.

My only complain with bytecodes is that I can't rename the file
"HelloWorld.class" to "hello". >:(
