[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility

If the artwork is embedded, there's no way to force Kodi to cache the thumbnails automatically - you have to manually navigate through the Kodi GUI and Kodi will slowly extract the artwork from the video or music files, creating the cached thumbnail versions.

If the thumbnails are remote (downloaded from the internet) or local (stored alongside the video/music files) then texturecache.py c movies etc. should cache the artwork automatically (so long as the artwork is still accessible - remote artwork has a habit of disappearing).

You can determine if your artwork is embedded, remote or local by viewing the metadata for an item, eg. texturecache.py jd movies avatar - if the artwork path starts with [email protected] then it is embedded and cannot be automatically cached. If it starts with http or https, then it is remote.
Texture Cache Maintenance Utility: Preload your texture cache for optimal UI performance. Remotely manage media libraries. Purge unused artwork to free up space. Find missing media. Configurable QA check to highlight metadata issues. Aid in diagnosis of library and cache related problems.
