#352 Deep relational linking on Insert screen


I'd like to see the relational links on the Insert page, and
possibly in the relational popups. I have a database
where I've put all text elements into a separate text
table to simplify i18n. The tables that have links to the
text table also link to one another. Of course, the logical
element to show when entering data is the name field.
But that is a link to the text table so all I see is number.

As an example:

objects.content -> contents.id
contents.name -> text.id

contents field to display: name
text field to display: data

In the drop down for objects.content I'd like to see the
text.data related to contents.name rather than the text.
id (which is relatively meaningless)

    I'm usassigning this from me - I did some basic work on it,
    but didn't get very far, as is this touching the innermost
    parts of the relational features.

    It's a nice feature though, but I'm not having enough time
    at the moment. I'll stick it to my private todo list so long. :)

    If I understand correctly, the need is for an additional level of relations (with an intermediate table).
