I've looked into it further and the problem is that the FileCounter is not a FileType class. The 
current implementation only works for classes that inherit from FileType. Which is slightly more 
useful than without the callback, but not very Pythonic (even broken, I think).

I'll take this issue to the developer list.

(Oh, and remove the reference to 'fmt.py' which I forgot to strip out)
