----------------------------------------
Feature #10666: Allow setting of default MIME type for WEBrick
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10666

* Author: Parker M
* Status: Open
* Priority: Low
* Assignee: Nobuyoshi Nakada
* Category: lib
* Target version: current: 2.2.0
----------------------------------------
HTTPUtils [specifically specifies `application/octet-stream` as the fallback MIME Type](https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/projects/ruby-trunk/repository/entry/lib/webrick/httputils.rb#L131). Other web servers allow you to change the default to, say, `text/html` or `text/plain`. I would like to be able to set this to ay MIME Type in the `mime_tab` list, or to specify a `"default"` MIME Type in the `mime_tab` that is used:

    mime_tab[suffix1] || mime_tab[suffix2] || mime_tab["default"] || "application/octet-stream"

or 

    mime_tab[suffix1] || mime_tab[suffix2] || @default_fallback_mime_type

What do you think?
