Q: How do I find wrong values for author sort box?

When the author sort box in the Edit Metadata window turns read, it means that Calibre thinks it holds the wrong value. E.g.:
Author: Robert A. Heinlein
Author sort: Heinlein, Robert A.

gives green, while
Author sort: Heinlein, Robert
or, of course,
Author sort: Stranger in a Strange Land
yields red.

Rather than having to look at the Edit Metadata window one by one for each entry, is there any way to sort out which records Calibre thinks has an incorrect sort value--for Title Sort as well as author while I'm at it?

The Quality Check plugin has a function to do this.

And for title sort
and for commas (or not commas) in the authors name
or Authors initials that do not match your standard (setting)

and way more things
