Currently MythMusic only supports embedded album art in ID3V2 tags even
in the 0.25pre version because the version of TagLib (1.6) we require
doesn't support reading/writing album art to any other format.  TagLib
1.7 does now support album art in flac files but that is probably a
little too new to make the minimum version required. It would be fairly
trivial to add support in 0.25pre since the infrastructure is already in
place and we could conditionally add support if TagLib 1.7 is installed
it just requires someone who is interested enough to write the code :)
