Hi all!

Current in pacman we have python-magic from http://darwinsys.com/file/
with an unknown custom license. We have other implementation with MIT
license made by ahupp [1]. The second one is available in pypi and is
more advanced that the first one.

I have been checking the code of dependencies of python-magic and I
can see that deepin-movie and diffoscope supports well ahupp version.

Why not replace python-magic with diffoscope version, as can see in
AUR [2] this version is used for much more packages.
