ListItem.Art(poster) - Returns the poster of the currently selected tv show.
ListItem.Art(tvshow.poster) - Returns the tv show poster of the parent container
As of right now when switching between posters and banners for TVShows, what you end up with is the banner only (default image). For skinners/users alike it's nice to be able to toggle between them (to use posters instead of banners). x4x just takes the banner and stretches it out to fit the poster size with <aspectratio>stretch</aspectratio> or leaves a tiny banner if set to keep. With one of these Info Labels working it would allow a skinner to utilize this, plus I would imagine most skins already have a "poster" option built in and this feature would straighten out the stretched banner and make things look like they should.

This has been added to mainline for some time now; however, i suspect that this will also require changes to the database as well as new table where the artwork paths are stored... furthermore, the scraper will need to change as well to accommodate the changes; seems a bit involved...
During a quick search I found the following: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/commits/Frodo/xbmc/GUIInfoManager.cpp?page=1
I'm sure there's a whole lot more to find... I'll look into it a bit further and hopefully catch where the initial change occurred!
