There is internal Jifty magic with column names ending in "_id".  You 
can add an _id to a refers_to column to get the actual numerical ID back 
instead of the actual object.  As a result, you can't name refers_to 
columns with an ending of "_id", things get confused.

This bit me for hours once a long time ago and, now that I'm thinking 
about it, I don't think I ever contributed a documentation patch.  Shame 
on me :(.

I don't have time to craft one at the moment, but if you do I'm sure it 
would be welcomed.
