Roadmap - Metal MapLibre

Implement a Metal graphics backend to ensure iOS in future releases is fully supported, as Apple is deprecating OpenGL.

First, the codebase shall be modularized to prepare the existing OpenGL architecture for a more modern graphics backend like Metal. Once the renderer is modularized, we will proceed with implementing the actual Metal redering backend.
