Beta Artwork Beef - automatically add extended artwork
Using advancedsettings.xml to configure what art is fetched locally is just my initial approach to configurable art for music. Avoiding it being hard coded into core is a huge step forwards, but using advancedsettings.xml has weaknesses. It is not a best place to set default behaviour, and some devs want to deprecate advancedsettings.xml completely.

Thinking aloud an actual setting would possibly be better long term, something that an addon (or skin) could set even? Then again, only advanced users would want control of this flexibility.  Or for now a non-empty default value in Cadvancedsettings, but that becomes a hard coded thing again by the back door (just not as hard to change as burried in other code would be).
