web client reporter: can't hard code a list of filter values

Bug Description

When creating a reports template, it is often useful to enter ("hard code") values into a filter. Current example is a report on the Atlanta Zoo DVD/Pass that is available for Georgia libraries. As there are two editions of the DVD that are valid, we would prefer to enter both bib IDs into a filter so those running the reports don't have to look them up.

In the web client reporter UI, if you create a filter and change the operator to "In list", then click "Change Filter Value", you're presented with a "Value:" modal where you can enter your values. However, if you enter a comma-separated list (e.g., "5487517,5628015"), the resulting SQL uses that literal value ("5487517,5628015") rather than the desired list of each value separately.

Ooo, yes. This is another thing about the wc reporter that is really, really frustrating!!! I've tried every workaround I could come up with for added punctuation to force the entries to be distinct, but no luck.

Bumping this up to "High" - we're still having to go into the XUL client to create these reports.
