Again, this is so that when looking at the raw directory (either with `ls`, Nautilus, Explorer, or Browse Music Folder on my Squeezeboxen) the artists are naturally sorted properly (e.g. The Clash in the Cs and Tom Waits in the Ws). If I move over to using a VB appliance to make all this easier, I would need to retain this setup. It sounds like this is possible with a few minor patches to some tools.
You'll need Perl programming skills to do this. You could also contact the ripit developer: ripit <at> suwald <dot> com and request this enhancement.
