[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Sub-subseries custom usage?

Hello everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone out there has configured their instance to make sub-subseries level designations available.

I'm currently working with some very large collection imports where sub-subseries would be useful, and know that EAD allows for I think a maximum of twelve levels (or something faintly ridiculous), but also know that the out-of-the-box AS doesn't include a sub-subseries level designation. I know you can technically nest subseries as children under each other, but this feels like bad form and plays havoc with our display code. We could probably figure out something ourselves to hack in a sub-subseries designation, but I wanted to see what/if anyone else was doing, as we'd like to try and build consistently with other institutions to make future inter-institutional collaboration go more smoothly.

Many thanks for any help! I'm new to this listserv and have been learning a lot following conversations but still have a long ways to go.
