Actually, it would be even better to allow the order to be a settable
option. For example, the way I listen to music, I would find it easiest to
have:

'Album' with 'Song' by 'Artist'

These are issues that can be fixed with a custom skin. The clean look of having
each item show up in bold, and the prepositions slightly muted, is created by
the skin.

The current method of doing this inside server settings would be to use
titleFormat, but then you end up with the whole thing being treated as a single
"title" in the web interface and it all comes up bold, sometimes having
redundant album and artist info. Perhaps a good way to really work this would
be to extent titleformat to provide an array of variables, instead of just a
single formatted standardTitle string?

It would avoid proliferation of format settings for every different type and
place that a title might come up.
