Quoting Ray Collett (ray@norwesters.net):

The latest in CVS has that mv_metadata entry, and you will want to
copy those lines from the new construct/products/mv_metadata.asc file
to make it work as the new demo does. The keys are products::display
and products::image ; make sure you replace the __MVC_IMAGEDIR__ and
__MVC_IMAGEURL__ with appropriate values.

I will be working on a new mv_metadata scheme to make update easier, since
the metadata can be important to the operation of the admin interface.
This will involve saving the original values of all of the MVC_WHATEVER
templating strings so that you can copy the data from the latest template.
This will be in 4.7.x, which will follow shortly after we release 4.6.0.
