What if you store the sort tags with each artist and album instead of
each song?  That way to tell Rhythmbox once that "The Living End" should
be sorted as "living end, the", instead of assigning that string to each
song.  If there's no sort string for an artist or album, fall back to
using the artist or album name.

I find it very unlikely a user would want the same string to sort
differently for different songs.  I suppose it is *possible*, though the
result would probably be confusing for the user.
