|Summary||0000111: Support for brotli compressed file detection|
|Description||https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brotli, is a new compression algorithm implemented by google. It is already supported by most browsers. it seems it's mime type should be `application/x-brotli`. Currently, `file` detects it as `application/octet-stream`.|
It seems that Google's implementation doesn't include the magic bytes needed for libmagic to detect it - there's an open issue about it: https://github.com/google/brotli/issues/727 So I thought an issue should be opened here as well.
