This is ok, except that it will display 'info-albumartistsort and
'info-artistsort in the browser lists.  These may seem unnatural to some
users.  Eg. "The Prodigy" will be displayed in the artist list as
"Prodigy, The".  It would be good to at least mention this in the

A correct implementation would collate by 'info-albumartistsort (or
'info-artistsort) and display 'info-albumartist.  For example Rhythmbox,
or whatever it is called nowadays, does that.  I've been trying to
