A system-wide language-specific rule set/configuration for title sort. For titles in Spanish “El” and “La” should be ignored just as “The” is for English, etc. This must be language specific. For example, “A” at the beginning of Spanish titles (i.e. “A Dios”) shouldn’t be ignored for sort, as it is in English.
There is an added complexity in the Spanish language because sometimes “El” is an article and should be ignored (when it means “the") and sometimes it’s a pronoun and shouldn’t be ignored (when it means “he”). Same goes for “La”. Add a way to indicate if a word like this should be ignored for sort or not? That's a nice to have.
Added new app.conf "use_locale_for_sortable_titles" option to force use of a specific language for sortable preferred/nonpreferred labels. Sortable label generation is now language-aware.
Note that only labels current support this sortable value generation. If we need to extent support for text attributes let's create another JIRA for that.
