Box range parsing

Apologies if this has been discussed before (or if it was shelved for complexity). One feature that would improve collections management functionality in the AT is box range parsing of instances during EAD import. In other words, if a component has a box range in EAD (e.g. 1-3, AT imports that range as a single instance (1-3) rather than three separate instances. Clicking on Manage Locations for example brings up an instance of 1-3. The problem is that there are three barcodes (and perhaps 3 locations) for those three boxes.

Granted, other options are to add additional instances in the AT or eliminate box ranges in EAD--either of which requires siginificant work. FYI, we're addressing the issue programatically, parsing ranges in the AT (MySQL) to create component clones with unique box numbers/instances.
