[Archivesspace_Users_Group] customizing your own reports, especially for locations?

We're building our own report interface using a PHP form on a separate web server to query the MySQL database directly, essentially bypassing the ArchivesSpace interface. I also use Toad for MySQL if I need to run a quick and dirty report, but the PHP form is meant to be more user-friendly (it allows archives staff to build custom reports without requiring a knowledge of SQL). It's still in the testing phase, but I can send you what we've done so far if you're interested.

We are migrating from AT to ArchivesSpace.  We also happen to be moving portions of our collections from one physical location to another this summer.  The ability to create location reports is crucial for our planning.  

ArchivesSpace does not feature reports for locations at this time.  Is anyone out there doing anything in-house to create your own reports?  

Many thanks,
