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,
htmlText = manilaSuite.gems.newGemForm
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.
