Ulrich,
Didn't you know that module is actually version 0 of the magic
interpreter module; you know the one that you program by a writeable
/proc entry with lines like this:

0 belong 0xcafebabe /usr/bin/java
0 string <!--applet /usr/bin/appletviewer
0 lelong 0x04200301 /lib/elksemu
0 belong 0x1B3 /usr/bin/mpeg
0 string GIF87a /usr/bin/zgv
0 string GIF89a /usr/bin/zgv

I expect V1 will be along soon :-)
