OK, I think I might understand now.  Do your "branches" use different 
shelving systems?  So, what is kept on shelf K1 in one place is on N13 
in another, for example.  You want each item (not each biblio) to have 
its own shelving location?  But what happens when a book from one 
branch moves to another?

I do this already and I consider pre4 badly broken.  It's particularly 
bad for MARC21 users, as I think the main developers use UNIMARC 
instead.  Most of the bugs should have been shaken out, but I would 
like access to updated MARC21-Koha mappings.  I think I need a file 
containing the output of the command:

   mysqldump -u KOHAADMINUSER -p koha --opt --quote-names 
--no-create-info marc_subfield_structure marc_tag_structure

I will do this today.  This annoyed me before I was working on the 
installer, but I normally remember my MySQL password.
