    1 The straight-forward way to do this with a relational database is to create an intermediary table (as Django does automatically with ManyToManyField) and then add fields to that table.  Setting up this structure in Django is also straight-forward, but it took some work for me to find the right Field arguments to make it all work as I'd like on the admin side.  Here's how I did it:
     1The [source:trunk/tests/testapp/models/m2m_intermediary.py Many-to-Many Intermediary] test case already shows how this is structured.  What I add here is a set of parameters for the fields in the intermediary model that allow smooth inline editing in admin.
