Beta Artwork Beef - automatically add extended artwork

If AB uses the file name version and I can eliminate all the basic versions, and have AB scrape the artwork anytime I scrape or refresh an entry automatically that would be awesome.
Kodi has always imported artwork with both names "poster.jpg" and "movie name-poster.jpg", depending on source configuration; the short one doesn't work if your source isn't configured with "Movies are in separate folders that match the movie title".

Kodi 18 has had the ability to add the extra art from scrapers or NFO files for most video library items for most of the year. The work has been done for local files for months, but Team Kodi doesn't like the way it is configured and won't offer any suggestions or direction beyond "wrong approach".

                        <visible></visible>
                    </control>

read thru the whole wiki but no hints. (would have expect something like this in the "skin section" off the wiki, but nooo.)
 See this section of the documentation. There are only "gui" and "auto" modes, and "auto" respects the add-on settings.
