OneToOneField conflicts with ForeignKey

Description (last modified by Adrian Holovaty)

I have a model class that has both a OneToOneField and a ForeignKey to the same other class. Eg.

class Base(meta.Model):
    name = CharField()

class Extension(meta.Model):
    base = meta.OneToOneField(Base)
    parent = meta.ForeignKey(Base)

When using Base instance, when I try to call Base.get_extension() it uses the parent foreign key reference instead of the base OneToOne reference.

This refers to an API we no longer have. Closing.

Also, model validation should catch these sorts of problems with the new setup, and error out when two relations try to have the same descriptor attached, in which case it tells you to set related_name on one of them.
