We have a couple more projects lined up where we need a many to many 
relationship between objects and have decided that for us the best 
option is to bite the bullet and create a new table.  Its something we 
usually leave as a last resort, but at this point, that seems like the 
best option because of the issues you mentioned.  I haven't yet worked 
out all the details of how it is going to work other than a table that 
stores parent_id, child_id and relationship_type, with lots of caching.  
At this point it just seems like it is going to be the only way to 
provide the many to many relationship that is both stable and provides 
decent performance.
