I was actually thinking of a perl script, and the nautilus-metadata hack
(allows you to change things like icons for folders and stuff).

1) get metadata from the mp3s inside a directory
2) get the cover sheet for this metadata from amazon
3) set the album cover for the directory itself

Might think of adding some more of this directly into sound-juicer for
example, so that the covers are saved inside the mp3 itself.

I'll just toy with it for now.
