    Don't know anything specific. Two thoughts:
    * Parse the results from assoc and ftype,
    http://commandwindows.com/assoc.htm. You can use stdout to read results.
    * Use the registry tools in WScript to read from HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, e.g.
    looking at .txt points to txtfile, examining that shows it opens in Notepad.
