Not exactly what you are asking, but you might find this acceptable. Go to Preferences - Tweaks
and change the Control sorting of titles and series in the library display
to title_series_sorting = 'library_order'
Even though the titles will still show 'The xxxxx xxxx' and "A xxxx xxxx' they will sort as 'xxxxx xxxx, The' and "xxxx xxxx, A'.
