Seriously, my opinion is that your best bet would be to tag your music
with MusicBrainz when possible, and if not, save the local files. IIRC
you can save the files as cover.[jpg,png,etc] in the same directory
and they will be picked up; hopefully someone else can confirm that.
But MusicBrainz takes care of mine. :)

What tagger prog do you use? 
I've been using easytag which uses freedb.  I have found lots of dups there I have to say, but I have still had better results than with banshee itself.
Banshee does ok when importing the music from cd, but if I import mp3s the metadata plugin it does all sorts of weird stuff with track an album names :-(
I'm using ripperX to get high quality VBR mp3's.
