Beta 5 and earlier would remember when the user changes language for a 
given extension.

I removed that in beta 6 because it now also looks at the content, so 
it's not entirely clear when it makes sense to adopt the users choice. 
E.g. opening a CGI file and changing it to perl does not mean all CGI's 
should open as perl, since CGI's may often have a shebang in the top 
that would identify these correct.

So actually in beta 6 there is no way to override the default choices 
for languages (well, actually there is, but it involves hitting 
Terminal.app and using 'defaults') -- but I'll of course add something. 
I prefer when things are implicit, and just haven't found the proper 
way to learn from the user how document bindings should be.
