[EP-tech] To make a field multiple afterwards

in order to turn a single-value field into a multiple field, I do so by 
adding multiple => 1 to the field definition in cfg.d/eprint_fields.pl, 
then I do `bin/epadmin update $repoid`. This command will create the 
additional tables. But how can I make EPrints transfer the data to the 
new place, facing the tables still empty after that command? I wouldn't 
enjoy much doing that manually, it's error-prone regarding the sub-fields.

Kind regards,
