[jifty-devel] accessing Left and Right models through link table (LeftRight)

I've got a couple models and a link table as described in the trunk
version of the Cookbook for implementing a many-to-many relationship.

I'm having difficulty accessing information in the respective models
through the link table collection.

I've tried a couple different methods where $id is the left id.

First try:

$collection = MyApp::Model::LeftRightCollection->new();
$collection->limit(column => "left", value => $id);

while (my $left_right = $collection->next) {
    print $left_right->right->name;

Second try:

$left = MyApp::Model::Left->new();

$collection = $left->right;

while (my $left_right = $collection->next) {
    print $left_right->right->name;

To me both of these seem equivalent but both complain that object method
'name' cannot be accessed via MyApp::Model::LeftRightCollection.
