Added Spotify sample script to /SampleScripts/ folder in 2242.

It can browse user's Spotify playlists, browse playlists content and play 30 seconds previews of the playlist tracks in MM5.

TODOs: Syncing playlists + full playback of tracks (if possible)

Added MM5 > Spotify playlists sync in build 2244.

So playlists can be synced in both directions now:
- Spotify playlists are scanned o [MM5 > Playlists > Spotify]
- MM5 playlists are synced to Spotify library (the already existing playlists that were not created by MM5 are left untouched until all tracks are matched)

Possible future improvements:
1) full playback of Spotify tracks (those unmatched) in MM, this would be limited anyhow as it requires using web playback SDK api: + is allowed only for premium users and with further restritions described in Spotify's terms of use.
Currently unmatched tracks plays only the 30 seconds preview when played via MM5.
2) Sync of favorite artists ?
3) Sync of favorite albums ?

Improved the matching process further in 2256

So that:
'High Hopes - 2011 Remaster' matches 'High Hopes'
'A New Machine (Pt. 1) - 2019' matches 'New Machine, Pt. 1'
