i changed my ~/.mc/bindings file to browser packages with midnight
just replace 'regex/\.s?a' ny 'regex/\.(s?a|ipk|opk)'

OT: the same way you can also browser e's cfg files. just add the three
lines from here[1] to the bindings file. you'll need eet for it to work,
which should be available from your distros repo. i also build eet for
the openmoko some time ago[2][3], might be outdated. no warranty here.
