Rhythmbox Artist Prefix Plugin A plugin for the Rhythmbox music player that allows your music library to be sorted by artist name ignoring certain prefixes in artist names. For example, you can ignore "The" in "The Beatles" to sort their music under 'B' instead of 'T'. The plugin works by querying the Rhythmbox database for artists with the given prefixes and that don't currently have a sort order defined (which allows the user to manually override the sort order derived by the plugin). So long as the plugin is active it will watch the database for changes too. The first time you run the plugin it will automatically add an entry to the sort order of all tracks returned by the query and if you leave it running then any time Rhythmbox finds new tracks matching the query their sort order will be updated as well. Whenever the plugin is notified of a track by an artist such as "The Beatles" and that track doesn't already have a sort order, it will chop off "The" from the artist name and add the remainder (in this case "Beatles") to the artist sort order property for that track.
