| Hi Derrick! | | maybe I didn't explain what the actual issue is: | | The problem is not whether the annotation data is stored *elsewhere* but | whether the annotation data is "tied" with object or not. Ahh, I see. That is a little bit different. | If it is tied with the object, then whenever you use annotations to | store a relation between several objects, you have to store the relation | twice if the relation is dyadic, to be able to do a reverse lookup: Yeah, like the classic doubly-linked list. I'll definitely have to take a look at this relations tool and see how it works.
