MS 4.1.0

I don't want to sound ungrateful -- the treatment of articles in 4.1.0 is already a major step forward, after all :-) -- but may I suggest a different model for 5.0.0?

Basically, no matter what goes into a global ignore list, it's going to be applied globally, and there will almost always be unusual titles that won't fit. Instead, I'd like to recommend the way Calibre treats this subject for ebooks:

In addition to the title field stored with every song, there would be a separate "title sort" field. By default this would be the same as the title, with articles moved to the end, just as 4.1.0 does now (and perhaps with leading apostrophes removed also :-). This way, the default behaviour wouldn't change at all -- but it would still be possible to handle special cases by manually editing the "title sort" field for (only) those songs which turn out to be exceptions.
