[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Normalizing dates in bulk?

If anyone has successfully scripted a method of posting normalized dates into ArchivesSpace resource records en masse, please let me know.  When we imported our resource record EAD files, most of our collections had inclusive dates that were not normalized.  With the new PUI giving researchers the ability to search a specific range of years, we'd really like to normalize our dates without having a student worker go through and do it by hand for 4300+ resource records.  If I can get the data into a spreadsheet, I can pretty easily separate what we have into beginning and ending years, but I need to be able to shove that data back into ArchivesSpace.

Bonus points if you can also help us script posting of normalized dates to component records!

Thank you,
