[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Moving/transferring an archival object as its own resource record

It would be possible to manually create a resource to replace the first 
archival object, then use the API to transfer all the archival objects 
descended from it to the new resource. Whether that is an option for 
you, or not, I don't know.

An easier alternative, but one that would change all the PUI URLs of all 
the descendant archival objects, would be to export as EAD, rearrange 
that outside ArchivesSpace, then import it as a new resource.
