What about when the cover art isn't held as a simple image file
on disc? I'm thinking of embedded covers in the ID3 tags of an
mp3 file or similar.

However, if the cover art is an image file on disc (JPG, PNG,
etc) then RB can just give the filename to libdmapsharing and
it will shrink it (if needed) and turn it into PNG (if needed).
I've tried this by making rb_dacp_player_now_playing_artwork
return different hard coded filenames, and it works :)

I haven't quite managed to get the the entry metadata
but this should be enough to support the DCAP request
