Improvements to set_metadata in audio #866

We should check if more cloud streaming backends should be injecting metadata into GStreamer. I suspect at least soundcloud mixes could be a candidate for that if we get the whole mix as one track.

This might also just tie into supporting things like radio streams getting new track info from outside of the audio stream. Additionally with the way we set the metadata for appsrc today it might end up being sent out at the wrong time.

Benefit of this is pulse, shoutcast and any other metadata aware sinks getting better data.

Oh, part of this could actually already be handled by the fact that we do change_track(track) and not change_track(uri) - so we already have the info. As for the missing bit we could be supporting change track with uri=None as a way to let us know the track info changed, but please continue playing the same stream.
