Here's a rough idea, depending on the {$Title} for your sorting, but
getting rid of A, An, & The:

$article_pat = '/^(?:The|An?) /i';
    '@strcasecmp(preg_replace(\''.$article_pat.'\', \'\',
$PCache[$x][\'=title\']), preg_replace(\''.$article_pat.'\', \'\',

The quoting is pretty messy and could be cleaned up, but it seems to
work in my (albeit brief) testing.
