Importing records from z39.50 in the database, doesn't normalize ISBN. Koha should have normalized ISBN else it create a lot of problems.

Patch rejected as proposed for the following reason:
"I will not be pushing this patch as proposed, as records imported via Z39.50 should not be munged in this manner. Many AACR2-based catalogers would object to having an ISBN entered according to ISBD rules, e.g.,
020 ##$a0914378260 (pbk. : v. 1) :$c$5.00
be automatically converted upon record import to
ISBNs should be normalized *outside* of the MARC record as needed for indexing and searching. To unconditionally strip away data from the source MARC record would only lead to the impression that Koha is not suitable for traditional MARC cataloging. You may not like the rules, but I don't make 'em. You really do have to do this hard way - normalize the ISBN for indexing and searching. Fortunately, there's another patch in the queue that will help get us there."
