[Zebralist] MARC Leader mapping?

Hi all,

I've got a small Zebra database (GRS records), which is setup with 
mapping to simple MARC records.  However, all records presented as MARC 
by Zebra have fixed values in the MARC leader - and I need to be able to 
  map (or set) at least the bibliographic level (leader position 7).
I have read the available documentation on mapping, and could find 
nothing about the leader (please tell me if I've missed it!).  I have 
tried what I could think of, but to no avail.  Even mapping to tag "000" 
just caused zebra to add an extra "000" tag into the presented record, 
leaving the leader unchanged.

Is it possible to map to (or other wise change) characters in the MARC 
leader when mapping to MARC on present in Zebra?
Is there any way of defaulting character positions in the MARC leader 
when mapping to MARC on present?

Any suggestions gratefully received...
