(Huh?  ...goes off and researches...  *red face*)
I apologize for providing bad information on the iPod photo.  I
personally only have an older model and have only interacted with the
new ones in a store (while it was attached to a Mac.)  Since iTunes
stores its art in the ID3 tags and those do get sync'd to the iPod, I
made a bad assumption.  Christophe:  do you know of any non-iTunes
software that will generate the thumbnail database?  Some googling
only turned up statements that there isn't (yet) any such.

It does appear that at least some portable music players _do_ pull the
art right out of the ID3 tags if it is present.  See, for example, the
second comment in this thread:
(talking about the Archos AV400)
