Turns out it didn't take much wading - I assume this option is slated
to appear near the OPACShelfBrowser syspref, and with the latest
stable (3.2.5) it's not there yet.

I plan to populate my database as if that option will show up sometime
soon. Which means the shelf-browser functionality will be a bit broken
until it appears, but that's better than having to go back and fix all
the data later.

Thanks a lot for the very helpful information.

In addition to the below, can anyone point out any possible problems
with having a lot (say hundreds) of Ccodes?

For my use case Collection isn't relevant for either physical location
(branch+call number) nor lending policies (item type), so I'm thinking
of using it simply as a category for grouping items - in some cases
hundreds, in others as few as a dozen.

Actually now that I think about it, I could use shelving location for
that and Ccode for the above, might make more sense.
