[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
I'm about to upgrade my Krypton MySQL setup to Leia. I use a LibreELEC VM for library updates and the clients run LibreELEC or OSMC.

For upgrades I usually export the library to separate files in Kodi before upgrading Kodi, and then I do a library update with a fresh database after updating Kodi.

However after reading here, it appears that this is not ideal, because the artwork gets re-compressed and degraded each time the library is exported.

I have performed 3 upgrades this way and I have noticed a reduction in artwork quality of existing entries in the library.

How can I leverage this tool to export my chosen artwork at full quality, bearing in mind that I have already selected non-default artwork for many movies through the Kodi UI (the basic artwork selector in the Aeon Nox Silvo skin)?

Does the mklocal.py script locally save the artwork that I have chosen, or does it save the default artwork that is scraped after a library scan?

Thanks in advance
