Heh. OK, more detail. The problem is that when I generate the database (using Turbogears, so automatic via tg-admin sql create), I get told I have a circular dependency between Page and Story. Do I really? Is this something I have to worry about?
Sorry for the extra email.
All help appreciated. The following is my data model. The idea here is that a Story can be comprised of many pages. One, and only one, of those pages may be the starting point of the story. I attempted to model this via a MultipleJoin (pages in a story), a ForeignKey(to map to a single page for a story), and a link back from the Page using a ForeignKey.
Contains the first page, and meta about a story.
first_page=ForeignKey('Page', default=None) #without this, model works
#alternate, but feels like a kludge: first_page=IntCol(default=0)
A page in a story.
I clearly don't understand what's going on under the hood. Should I just be using an IntCol as I indicated?
