Fix Version/s: None
Create (move) utility function to create a bbox from from an IRAF box from obs package to obs_base so others can use it.
If you'd like, we can rename the function _bboxFromIrafForObsCtio0m9Only or something like that and stick it back in the obs_package if you prefer - I really don't know what the expectation for universality is here, and when it's OK to say garbage-in-garbage-out.
I would think that perhaps supporting " as well as ' is reasonable, but negative indices are probably an acceptable (nay desirable?) place to fail perhaps?
Fine. I don't like the lack of clear specs as to what we're doing here, but I guess this is as good as we're getting for now. You (Merlin Fisher-Levine) should perform code review on the test case, then merge this ticket when you're happy.
Responding to your comments/questions in order:
1) Thank you!
2) No, we don't have a spec per se...
3) I don't know
4) I don't know
5) You can repeat "I don't know" as many times as needed for each of the weird cases you think up
6) I don't know.
