respond_to with MIME type wildcards?

I'd like to respond to requests for all kinds of image MIME types from a single respond_to. In particular, I don't want to register MIME types for each image format, I'd rather define only one with a wildcard, like this

  Mime::Type.register 'image/*', :image

Then, in the controller handle it like this

  def show     respond_to do |format|       format.image do         # check if concrete MIME type can be provided         ...         send_file @image.filename, :disposition => 'inline'       end

      format.html do         # send HTML page embedding the image       end     end   end

As it happens, this doesn't work. Registered MIME types are matched literally, the '*' is not interpreted as a wildcard.

The best I've come up with is this

  Mime::Type.register 'image/png', :png   Mime::Type.register 'image/jpeg', :jpg, ['image/jpg'], [:jpeg]

and then

      format.any(:png, :jpg) do         send_file @image.filename, :disposition => 'inline'       end

Is there a another way?
