For replacing the cover art plugin, I think your best bet is to look
at the current (python) cover art plugin. For transcoding, rhythmbox
has the code needed to do that automatically provided gstreamer can
transcode to that format, dunno if that's your case. I'm not sure it's
easy to get some python code to trigger while transferring a song to a
media device. This might be something worthwhile to add though ;)
