[Koha] [EXTERNAL] Filtering inventory results by cn_sort vs. callnumber

I'm in support of using cn_sort wherever sorting occurs as that's its
purpose. If I'm not mistaken, it's already being used in some places
without an existing system preference, and I don't see how the Inventory
tool is categorically different. Is it possible, perhaps in a plugin, to
configure new normalization methods for different classification sources?
That seems to be the purpose of the Classification Sources admin settings
but I'm not sure.

To answer Heather—I think your second question is correct, the two problems
are not intertwined. One deals with LC numbers being improperly normalized
and another deals with the normalized strings not being used as the sorting
value in places.
