I was referring to Frontier's ability to _serve_ a gem properly, with 
or without a type, by falling back on the extension. I believe the 
gems code simply writes the binary to disk - 
manilaSuite.gems.createNewGem and manilaSuite.gems.writeToDisk are 
the main routines, and have no Mac type-related code.

I did notice that manilaSuite.gems.newPage, which builds the gem 
upload form, uses the #urls table to decide where to post the form, 
as follows:

	htmlText = manilaSuite.gems.newGemForm 
(pta^.urls^.editorialGems, pta^.urls^.gemPostMessage)

So you could change gemPostMessage to point to a new script, based on 
existing code, and have it set the type and creator as you see fit.
