> The biggest complaint about the ObjRelationship mapping dialog is that it is often unclear
how it operates, especially to the new users. I.e. empty list of DbRelationships is displayed
as a white area, not giving any hints on what needs to be done to map a relationship. So that's
confusing. Same thing when you add 1 path component, there is no hint that you can chain more
path components for the flattened relationship.
> At the minimum we may just add some hint text ("Select next DbRelationship" in grey over
the next available dropdown), but ideally we should implement a path browser, similar to how
the SelectQuery prefetch and ordering browsers operate (and similar to how OS X Finder does).
