As Ryan mentioned, there is a patch in bugzilla which is the old cover
art support (which was in the "merge" branch) updated for then-current

While the patch works nicely for what it does, there are some things it
doesn't do, that would require reworking it to support:
 * art embedded into files (e.g. in ID3 tags)
 * art stored on (photo) iPods
 * art for podcasts

I'm not sure about everyone else, but I preferred to do the necessary
changes before putting it into cvs, on the assumption that we would do
it in the not-too-distant future. The problem there, is that no-one has
done it yet.

I guess the two options are to a) commit it as-is now, and realise that
we may have to make substantial changes to add support for the other
things, or b) leave it until the changes are done, which may be a while.
