skinning artist sortname and listitem.label / listitem.property(artist_sortname)
#1
OK, as soon as I posted this I thought some more and of course figured out an answer for myself:

Use System.GetBool(musiclibrary.useartistsortname) and then use ListItem.Label or ListItem.Property(Artist_Sortname) as desired.

Original post:
So now we have ability to alpha sort artists using sortname in settings.  But in lists skins typically show listitem.label as the "main" list identifier.  I don't see any way (without using something like skin.helper.service) to get the status of the setting.  If we had a way to get the setting in a skin, we could show ListItem.Property(artist_sortname) (which BTW, needs to be added to the wiki). Alternatively use the sortname as the ListItem.Label.
