Ok, since everyone's doing it, I will as well...
http://dcplusplus.sf.net/ADC.htm (yes, it's an ugly filtered word htm thing
etc, but that was just to get the nice autonumbering)...I threw it together
in two hours so I've probably forgotten a bunch...
As to searching, no regexp, that's for sure...
I can strech as far as + and - to indicate what should and should not be
searched for, but ||, nested expressions etc you'll have to filter

mime-types are good but the problem is to have an common mime-type database. There is lot of mysterious type (let's say application/ms-tnef (outlook) or application/proxy (netscape)) which are only know on a single platform (or even a single program) and there is even (a lot of file) file type without mime-types (let's say .ogg and .ogm files).
