Cool, that helps -- thanks.

On a broader level, though, _should_ I be approaching Mnesia in this  
way? Is there any better way of maintaining relations than doing all  
the ID creation manually? Can Mnesia deal with constraints like  
uniqueness? (Some Googling doesn't throw up anything obvious.)

Cheers,
