Add custom bluetooth metadata display mapping

What podcast feeds publish for title, track, author etc varies from podcast to podcast and typically what data is parsed by a podcast app varies from player to player. This parsing affects what is displayed to the head unit.

The idea is to add a section in per-podcast customization that would allow a user to pick how metadata gets mapped to their bluetooth car stereo system. It could work like the following.

For a specific podcast, a user could select a "Bluetooth metadata customization" option. When they select this, it opens up to various fields that currently get parsed by the app from the feed and how it sees things like "Title", "Track Name", "Author", etc (names I'm somewhat making up for fields) in a "key/value" pair type list/table. A user could then tap on "Title" for that metadata and select "Author" instead. The "Title" metadata as parsed by the app would be reported over Bluetooth as the "Author". Something like "Publication Date" (which is something gathered on a per-episode basis might be mapped to "None" initially, but the user could similarly tap "None" and select "Author" for instance to report that metadata as the "Author" to the head unit. In this fashion, a user could tailor podcasts to report their metadata more consistently to their listening device and display podcasts with a more uniform output customized to their liking.
