Yo!

OK, my doubts are:
* where should I place the files for new media types
(project-mediagoblin/mediagoblin/media_types)?
* what are the minimum files for a new media type (migrations.py
models.py  processing.py  transcoders.py)?
* what is the exact purpose of every python file for the new media
type? 
* what should be imported on those files and why?
* what should be done on html and statics files to make the media type
available?

with these simple questions maybe someone more experienced hacker can write a doc about the issue
cheers!
