Many of the people investigating the new multi-db functionality are coming back to django-users and django-dev asking why they can't have a foreign key to an object on a remote database. We need to specifically document that this isn't possible (and why it isn't possible).

Don't necessarily want to reopen this ticket, but the documentation seems wrong. It appears to state that cross-database joins on MySQL with InnoDB are not possible, whereas in fact they are.

(So it is not surprising that many users might request this feature? - we'd certainly like it!)
