[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Migrating compound subjects as a single term

When migrating subjects from Archivists' Toolkit to ArchivesSpace, ArchivesSpace separates any Archivists' Toolkit subject with subdivisions ("China -- History -- Cultural Revolution, 1966-1976 -- Posters") into separate "Terms"  ("China," "History," "Cultural Revolution, 1966-1976," and "Posters").

It is possible to migrate the subjects with subdivisions as a single "Term" rather than separate "Terms?"  We have a LCSH to FAST conversion process planned that would  be easier if the full string appeared as a single term rather than individual segments.
