Actually, not really. I've already got relatively robust code for
getting the mimetype of a file from the magic numbers, and if it
doesn't match the extension it wouldn't be that difficult to say
"upload successful, but your extension 'xxx' doesn't match the file's
mimetype 'mime/type'; do you want to fix this to 'yyy'?"

Just a thought, that. And it doesn't have to be limited to image
files, getting a list of valid types for PDFs and DOCs shouldn't be
too difficult either. But again, not sure about how useful this would
actually be.
