A feature request...

It looks like it's only possible to create a multiselect field populated by a model from the same app. Unless I'm missing something, this makes it impossible to create a stand-alone categories app... that is, you can't create categories and category groups in one app and then assign instances from another app to those categories.

Seems like it would be useful to develop a stand-alone categories app that can be used by many other apps in the same project (or other projects). But this is apparently not possible right now in django?

I have applications in production which use many-to-many relationships to models in other applications, and everything works fine. If you're having problems, try the django-users mailing list.
