Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Suggestion (quick)

Hey everyone,
 How about a slight modification to this suggestion?  Instead of
re-writing the string as "Artist, the" - would it be simpler to have
whatever sort function you use (if the language is english) simply
skip "the" word when sorting - but display it in normal order?  In
other languages - you can specify articles to "ignore" like this.  El,
La, Los...
 to clarify - here's a sample (sorted) output:

The Marones

 Or could this be labelled as "bad design" since it handles things by
exception - rather than by policy?

Take a look at - it's
not that simple, because we need to support other languages which have
different rules.
