Allow test client to guess files' mimetypes

Currently, all files posted through the test client are sent as 'application/octet-stream'. To test views that rely on mimetypes you have to create a request object from scratch, which is quite tedious. It'd be nice to allow python to guess the mimetypes (therefore simulating a browser's encoding) to make the process easier.

I'm not sure why the patch doesn't display correctly in Trac. You'll have to download it to see it.
