Means to distinguish multiple listed taxa with the same taxon & place #196
I am mostly ok with this, but one question, one issue, and one bit of feature creep.
Question: do you want to use primary_listing to control what gets shown at http://www.inaturalist.org/check_lists/5720-Pepperwood-Ranch-Natural-Preserve-Check-List and http://www.inaturalist.org/places/pepperwood-preserve? If so, some serious thought needs to be given to the database indexes that underly those pages.
Issue: this will require a script to be run that will set primary_listing on all existing listed taxa. This script will take a very long time because there are a lot.
Creep: it would be good to use this column as a way of limiting the listed taxon stats queries, i.e. don't collect stats when primary is false, show stats from the primary when showing non-primary listed taxa. A nice-to-have, but I figured I'd state it at least to remind myself.
I think this is ok to contract.

yes, I think it would be good to control both http://www.inaturalist.org/check_lists/5720-Pepperwood-Ranch-Natural-Preserve-Check-List and http://www.inaturalist.org/places/pepperwood-preserve to diminish the discrepancies between whats shown on these views to minimize confusion.
