Different factories won't help because the user should be able to update
the file object's content after ist was created.

OK - this was a bit confusing. One more try:

 I want to make an object provided one interface (IFile) always and one
 interface (IImage) "sometimes". Sometimes means "whenever libmagic thinks,
 the file is an Image". I don't want to modify any interface but only the
 object's list of provided interfaces.
