Looking at the code I see that Zim uses readLines (in newfs.local) to fetch
an page. This looks a good place to intercept and silently convert
the document from alien into zim format, so that zim only sees zim

However, before a page is loaded, there is also a call to readLine but I
haven't quite found out who does the call, and why. Is it some kind of peek
at the document to see if it is a zim document?
