[jifty-devel] column in Model references ModelCollection

Hi All

I guess I'm being too stupid here but what I'm trying to achieve in my 
model is:

package MyApp::Model::Foo;
use Jifty::DBI::Schema;
use MyApp::Record schema {

     column one =>
         type is 'text';

     column two =>
         references MyApp::Model::BarCollection by 'required_by',
         default is undef;

package MyApp::Model::Bar;
use Jifty::DBI::Schema;

use MyApp::Record schema {

     column required_by =>
         references MyApp::Model::Foo;

     column requires =>
         references MyApp::Model::Foo;

Weirdly jifty schema --setup doesn't bother creating column two in foos 
and throws no errors or warnings to give me a clue.

What I really need is to have one record in Foo to be able to reference a 
collection of Foo records but whatever method I try gets nowhere fast.

Can anyone give me a clue as to what to try next? I have played with 
referencing collections in a much simpler form and just can't get the damn 
things to cooperate in any way. I'm even getting close to implementing 
this using just Mason and DBI (faithful old friends). :-(
