Galen's solution may be easier. I just haven't had much luck with MarcEdit in a batch mode. But if you're doing a single import, changing the subfields in the import file with MarcEdit would be easier than my suggestion. We're doing an automated import on a regular basis so that wasn't an option for us.

Not to bombard you with alternatives, but I would actually recommend
that you use a tool like MarcEdit's global change feature to move the
949s to 952 fields, then import the records. While Brenden is correct
that you can change the Koha to MARC mapping, that's not enough to get
the item records indexed correctly. If you're using Zebra, you would
have to edit records.abs.
