[wp-hackers] Multiple Enclosures, detecting enclosures

Is the way that Wordpress creates multiple enclosures in its RSS feed
(for example, multiple mp3 files using multiple custom fields with the
"enclosure" key) non-standard or is Apple iTunes broken? I see the
multiple enclosures in the feed when I examine it, but iTunes sees
only the first one.

I also find the "automatic enclosure" detection based on the headers
to be unreliable at best. I'm sure there are technical reasons that
this is a better way than just (or also) using the file extension for
known media types? Could that be an option? That would also enable WP
users to podcast using ourmedia.org storage, which apparently doesn't
send the proper headers... as most sites don't seem to!
