Proposed patch

Use both *.ogg and *.oga for audio/ogg and both *.ogg and *.ogv for
video/ogg. Also, use *.spx only for audio/x-speex.

I'm attaching a patch.

    Fix some globs for OGG files
    Use both *.ogg and *.oga for audio/ogg and both *.ogg and *.ogv for
    video/ogg. Also, use *.spx only for audio/x-speex.

Having *.ogv for both video/ogg and video/x-theora+ogg creates problems:
ogv files are now determined from their contents rather than from their extension, and this is known to be unreliable with OGG containers, we actually get "audio/ogg" as a result for some video files.

My colleague Eike Hein who looked into it, said:
"An Ogg video is *commonly* Vorbis for audio and Theora for video, but not necessarily; mapping exists for the bitstreams of other codecs (e.g. VP8). IOW claiming Theora feels wrong to me unless the MIME magic can actually detect Theora in there (e.g. by checking the FOURCC)."

So it seems to me that *.ogv should be removed from video/x-theora+ogg, as a result of this commit which associates it with a more generic (and more correct) mimetype.

    Remove *.ogv as a glob for Theora videos
    As we can't be certain that it is actually Theora video (could be
    VP8 video as well). *.ogv is still associated with the more generic
    video/ogg mime-type.
