[Koha] Koha migration & subfield problem

Does anyone have any ideas regarding my problem with 852/952 $m.  The problem is that, in editing all of my holdings data to migrate nicely into Koha, I cannot figure out how to migrate my old 852 $m data (call number suffix, a standard MARC subfield, I have publication years and volume #s stored in this field). When I use MarcEdit to swap fields & edit data, I can write a regular expression that will find all 852 $h, i, and m and move them to 952 $o.  However, this only finds & replaces those 852s that have all 3 of those subfields.  Most of my records do not have all 3, they only have $h and i.  So, when I run a second find & replace to pick up the 852s that only have those two subfields, then a second 952 $o is created.

In short, it seems that my choices in regard to $m data are: (1) move $m to some completely different subfield ($z public note, $t copy number?  Little misleading), or (2) have 2 instances of $o in some of my 952 fields, although I am not sure how this will render, or even whether Koha will accept this (is $o repeatable??)

I hope I have been clear.  Please let me know if you have ideas.  I am running Koha v. 3.0001005 and I attach a sample record (with most edits made) below.  Note that this record contains two 952s because it is a 2 volume set, as well as the $m's.
