This patch adds the beginning of an Album Art appendix to the manual. I think an appendix is most appropriate, since not all targets that support Album Art will ever support it in the WPS, so putting it in that chapter would be wrong. A reference would probably be smart though.

A couple of todos/issues with this patch:
* I don't know how to style the item list/filenames
* The replacement characters get a bit weird. I suppose some escaping is needed, but my LaTeX skills aren't great.
* It should probably direct users at the Wiki for information on programs to collect/convert albumart.
* I'm not entirely sure which conditions to use in the opt/nopts
This task depends upon

Commit candidate:
* Proper style for the filenames
* Fixed the issues with the replacement character list
* Use the proper opt combination to decide whether to include the AA appendix (\opt{swcodec}{\opt{tagcache}{}})
* Album art WPS tags added to the WPS tag appendix
* Pictureflow section refers to the Album Art appendix rather than the wiki

Unrelated fix:
* Add \opt{lcd_bitmap} around the image WPS tag section to remove it from the Player manual
