For has_many, instead of

refers_to MyApp::Model::Foo by 'bar';


refers_to MyApp::Model::FooCollection by 'bar';

It's probably just a typo, but if it's not, that comma at the end of the 
line above should be a semicolon ; in your real model.

Either way should work, I think.  You might need to "use" the model to 
which you're referring though.

Hope that helps.
