Relationships Defined on One Side

Reported by Alex | June 20th, 2009 @ 05:12 PM | in 2.x

I'm not sure where to put feature requests, but I think it would be neat if relationships between models could be defined in only one of the models.

Strange as it may seem, it would be nice to decrease the coupling between models, so that say for example, User models could exist, without requiring Profile models. But that if added, Profiles can "enhance" Users.

The difficulty obviously being that all models would have to be inspected, even if you're only using one.

Either way, it was a thought I had.

    This would probably be a great deal of work, and likely drastically increase startup time as all models would have to be reflected over to determine associations. I agree it would be nice, however by opening a model you would not be aware of the associations it contained as they might be on the opposite side. My vote is for readability.

    can probably be marked as wontfix until a patch is provided.

    I agree with Steve.
