> While looking at my collection, I noticed that the artists prefixed with "the" are all grouped together.  The sorting should be based on the artist's "sort name" instead of just the name.
> As another weird effect of not using the "sort name", the NGS changes to allow variations in artist name cause this sorting to show some of them under "The NNNNN" and others under "NNNNN".  As a particular example, I have releases from "The Lightning Seeds", where some releases do not show "The": http://musicbrainz.org/artist/1ba601a0-3401-4b28-8ddd-9af8203661e8
