Allow object idnos to inherit prefixes from "parent" collections

Description

The numbering system in place for occurrences and entities is already fine for us. We would just like this one for collections and objects:

The prefix would be the ID of the parent collection or record group (if unset, its parent collection IDNO).

For example, an object in the Steve Heller Collection (MG.07) would be assigned a serial number appended to that:

MG.07.838

An object in the Jeanne Siegel Papers (SVA.14.16.01) would be assigned a serial number:

SVA.14.16.01.24

Where the system would fill in the “SVA.14.16.01” based on the parent collection, and the “24” or whatever the next available number is.
