Okay, in that case it's the same as the first point. Sources need a way
of overriding the art-choosing logic to either a) tell it to use a
particular url (podcasts), or b) use a returned pixbuf (ipods).

One way to do it might be to give sources a new virtual method:
GtkPixbuf* get_art (RhythmDBEntry *entry)

The default implementation would pass it off to the "Cover Art Manager"
which would handle it. The Art Manager vould use on already in memory,
get it from the on-disk cache, read it from the file's tags, get it from
the 'net or whatever.

Sources like the iPod could load it from the iPod art db and just return
that. Sources like podcasts, which have a particular url associated with
an entry, could use a Art Manager function something like
rb_art_manager_load_uri, which would handle caching the art.

The main art display widget would just listen for playing song changes,
and do rb_source_get_art (playing_source, entry) to get the new pixbuf.

If we wanted to have art in the album browser, we would probably need
something like rb_art_manager_get_art_for_album (albul_name).
