In 0.9.7 all the local file support does is to look in the folder the
tracks are in for image files with name
{cover,album,albumart,.folder,folder}.* (case insensitive).

Current svn adds drag-and-drop, and we're working on the UI for setting
art from image files elsewhere.

Any plans to pull this from MusicBrainz when the tracks are already
tagged as such? After noticing that Banshee pulled the right cover all
the time when it was set on MBz, I was disappointed to find that
Rhythmbox was doing its own (often incorrect) search.
