What about just restricting this to artists for the moment?  That's
what most people care about, I think, and there's fewer problem
artists.  More than likely you would use search or type-ahead on
artist anyway.  

iTunes only does the special sorting without "The" for artists but not
albums or songs.

I appreciate that it's a tricky problem to solve for the general case,
but sorting without "The" for just artists, just for en locales would
probably keep 95% of people who request this feature happy.  So
some non-English artists wouldn't be sorted that way, but most en users
wouldn't want that in any case.
