Title Cap various track tags, featuring editable exceptions lists

OS X 10.10 and later only. Capitalizes the first letter of each word in your choice of the Name, Artist, Album Artist, Album, Composer, Grouping, Movement, Work, or Show tags of the selected iTunes tracks, but based on rules of title capitalization in the English language. Thus, "what it feels like for a girl (above and beyond 12'' club mix)" becomes "What It Feels Like for a Girl (Above and Beyond 12'' Club Mix)". Two user-editable Exception Lists can handle words that should not be title-capped or modified. Dry Run feature enables you to see what would be changed via Console.app log messages from the script.
