An interesting option would be to allow you to specify the page # to retreive the cover from from books that don't have the cover in the front (possibly because of introductory or identifying text).
Get from file is a Edit Metadata function also.
select a format (to be the source of the cover), click the book icon to the left.
The blue i below that will copy the metadata from the book. Note this does not honor the preferences set for 'Download Metadata'. It will overwrite any value with the found metadata.
