    I want to help a group of users take greater advantage of QuickLook and came across this tip.

    What would be the pitfalls of simplifying a few steps by providing an entire altered info.plist to a user? I'm a little concerned about this passage:

    I'm sure the info.plist file can be altered, but you'd think they'd largely all be the same -- Apple doesn't seem to regularly upgrade TextEdit, if Software Update is any indication. Therefore, why would some folks have UTExportedTypeDeclarations, and some wouldn't?

    If the new plist lacks UTExportedTypeDeclarations, what is lost if the altered doesn't?

    If the new plist has UTExportedTypeDeclarations, what is lost if the altered one does?
