1. Yes. it is based on mtype.cpp and this will be real trouble. I've
wrtitten it some time ago. I don't know how to implement this things
without having troubles with license issues.Thus i'll be glad to see
your implementation of the same routines.
2. if you don't like util.c filename feel free to suggest any other.

P.S. To get rid of thread duplication, i suggest to continue
discussion about AM_MEDIA_TYPE routines here.
