Add album art to ALL files in an entire directory TREE?

The scenario:
You rip a hundred discs from a box you found in the closet. You either scan or go find all the album art, putting each one in as "folder.jpg" in each album folder. (because other media players want it there, in that file, CALLED THAT, (Sonos).
What you really want is to tell Media Monkey, "Here's the root of the directory I'm working in, now go and load ALL folder.jpg files to ALL local (flac) files in every folder in this entire tree."

This would take the computer less than five minutes, or it will take you two and a half hours. Which seems more pleasant?

Once that works, it would be pretty easy to reverse the process, producing folder.jpg from album images in the Tag, although there would be some complication when there are multiple images, etc.
