[Banshee-List] Whats the purpose of musicbrainz related code in banshee?

Hi there banshee folk,

I was browsing through the code for banshee the other day, and came across
Musicbrainz code, forgive me for my ignorance. I would like to know what the
purpose of the musicbrainz code is, from what I could tell it is identifying
tracks, I am assuming this is for album art if so can it not also get
metadata?  I have a continuous gripe with linux music players on this one so
please be patient with me but I figure if its getting album art and doing a
good job 80-90% of the time why not have an option somewhere under
preferences where I can say update metadata with musicbrainz.  Last I heard
the last.fm api has issues so we can't have an autopilot way of doing this,
I know most people will recommend I install musicbrainz picard or another
such application though wouldn't it make the application (banshee) more
competitive if it had such a feature both for new users and existing users?
