Stuart and Ylee (and other devs),

I saw this when browsing the commits log today:

"(In [12723]) Ignore 'An' along with 'The' and 'A' in the programme finder.

 Closes #3048"

I don't believe "An" or "A" should be stripped when sorting.  I also
noticed this in mythmusic.  For example... the Band named "A Perfect
Circle" isn't refered to as "Perfect Circle".  Also, I believe "An"
should be in the same boat.

However, I still believe that "The" should be ignored in sorting.
This is traditionally how the majority of media players sort their
playlists.  iTunes, WMP, etc.

What does everyone else think?
