Several other programs, including one I like a lot,  Ampache
(http://www.ampache.org), make use of the amazon developer/webservices
program (and key) to legally download cover art. Perhaps myth could
take an approach like that.

Out of the tarball, the field for the devkey is "" so the feature
doesn't work till you go register your own key, and place it in the
config file.

You can register for your own Amazon WebDev key here :
