In case you're wondering, the line breaking is based on items.cn_sort
and items.cn_source. The field items.cn_sort is a normalized call number
broken apart into sections which are left padded with 0s or spaces
depending on whether the section is alpha or numeric.

The perl library that does this for Library of congress actually lives
outside of Koha:

Library::CallNumber::LC

You can find the documentation here:
https://metacpan.org/pod/Library::CallNumber::LC

I've filed a bug report regarding maps:
https://github.com/libraryhackers/library-callnumber-lc/issues/10 (that
sounds like one of yours, hh)

If you know of other things that need to be fixed with the way that call
numbers are split or ordered, please let me know so that we can get bugs
filed :-)
