[Archivesspace_Users_Group] reordering from merge

No advice to offer, but to express a simple "you are not alone."

I've recently begun doing the same - merging detailed collection-level
records created during a collection inventory with existing container lists
ead-ified from Excel thanks to the new ASpace-friendly update to Steady.
The first (small) collection merged beautifully with all components
remaining in desired order; following the exact same procedures a second,
much larger (of course!) collection came out as what I've taken to lovingly
calling "component soup."

I've stopped with this work for the time-being in the hopes that the
upcoming patch might help.  Fingers firmly crossed.
