[Sugar-devel] mime types when moving files from journal to usb

My video game runs in both gnome and sugar. I want kids to be able to move
saved games back and forth between these platforms with ease.
I have created a mime-type for saved files in my video game:
application/x-my-cool-game. Datastore entries' metadata are saved with this
When a video game saved file is dragged to a usb stick, the mime-type is
thrown away (replaced with application/octet-stream), while dragging journal
entries to usb with mime-type application/x-tar (1) keep their mime type (2)
are given a nice .gtar extension to make their life easier in the world
outside of sugar.
Can I give the same benefits (keep mime-type, get an extension) to files
copied from the journal to a usb stick using my own custom mime-type?
The ugly alternative, as I see it, is to make all of my journal entries'
titles' metadata have extensions added to them at creation -- this will make
for a messy looking journal. But at least the files will have the right
extension for their life in gnome.
