Public bug reported:

Several of our client APIs (python-zeitgeist and libzeitgeist) currently
support guessing the subject interpretation from the mime-type.

I think it'd make sense to move this directly into the engine. So, if a
subject is inserted with an empty interpretation (which seems to be
allowed currently), we'll try to determine it from the mime-type.

This will avoid duplicating the mime-type mappings in different
bindings. It'll be even more useful for clients using the D-Bus API
directly (such as GTK+).
