Which I'm not terribly sure is the case, but I'll admit to not having looked at it much, if ever.
Given you can determine the file is a PDF, an md5sum would be a good way to reliably identify them that runs quick. That would give you a unique 32 hex digit identifier to use where you use the ASIN in the cover name.

I don't know how many PDFs include a cover image, but I would think the first page a logical place for one to be located. If the first page is obviously text then it seems likely that no cover was included.

I guess you could add this to your "wish list" at some point.

Thanks for your work on this enhancement to the kindle software.

@dhdurgee: the issue is not how *we* can ID them, but how does the *framework* does it, and if we can catch that and link that back to a physical file. Supposedly it does, and hopefully in a unique-ish manner, since it's in the DB, but then again, we're not relying on the DB keys here, so all may not be rosy.

In any case, that would only ever be for manual cover processing, PDF is a whole other kettle of fish compared to Mobi, so pulling & processing covers automatically, even if there were any (which, I'm fairly sure there aren't, which would leave processing the first page) is out of the question .
