[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility

Once you've installed Python somewhere, eg. in C:\Python27, you would run the script as follows:
Code:
C:\Python27\python.exe C:\texturecache.py c all

This assumes you have saved the script as C:\texturecache.py, and that any properties file you create is in the same folder as the script, ie. C:\texturecache.cfg.

Unless you're running a very recent Gotham nightly, the script will require access to your XBMC Userdata folder - it will use standard default values for this, but if your're using a non-standard XBMC installation then configure the path in the properties file (set the userdata property, ie. "userdata = X:\path\to\userdata"). If however you're using a recent Gotham build (from within the last week or so) you don't need to worry about setting the userdata property or having direct access to the files in that folder (at least not for caching, or pruning).

Just one more thing - adjust the width of your command prompt window so that lines don't wrap and make the output unreadable. Right click in the title bar of your command window, select Properties from the menu, and on the Layout tab increase both "Width" settings to about 160, then click OK.
