I'm not sure I agree with the approach this feature takes; specifying a large
and complex set of criteria for bulk hiding of items makes for a very difficult
feature to debug (as we've seen lately with this feature being broken).

Wouldn't it make more sense to just add a "hidden" or "visibility" field to the
items table?  Then any item could be masked in the OPAC (or staff client).  If
we took in more than just 0 or 1, then we could have levels of invisibility
(this would be good for biblio-level suppression, as well).  For example,
anonymous views can see hidden = 0, logged in users gain hidden = 1, staff can
see hidden = 2, etc.

We've got a bulk item editor, so making these changes in bulk would be pretty
simple; we'd just need to identify the criteria.  A small ergonomic change to
the Reports interface to allow the direct pushing of a report to the bulk
editor would make these convenient and seamless.
