How are you entering the data into the system? Specifically,
how are you *normalizing* the Author and book information?

I'm working on a ZPatterns based book cataloging
application, and right now I'm storing 'Book' objects with
the author names as a 'lines' property in the ZClass.

I'd like to change this so 'Author' objects are created and
stored in their own Specialist when a book is added, but I'm
not sure how.
