The original proof-of-concept patch looked for "cover.jpg" in the same
directory as the track, but the current version doesn't.

Bug 339704 is about adding support to GStreamer for reading image tags.
There is some discussion about technical details, such as whether to
report the "picture type" that ID3 stores. Once GStreamer supports it,
we can probably add it to the art framework.

I've had some ideas for how to fit all the different art source together
floating around for a while, and I'm hoping to have a play around with
it this weekend.

If my idea works, it should be fairly easy to plug the stuff that
everyone has been working on (Amazon lookup, etc) into it.

I don't suppose anyone knows how those hashes are generated, or of a
site that describes it?
