Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I like to import XML-data ro records with a reference-field:
<record id="crm_helpdesk_1" model="crm.helpdesk">
<field eval="1" name="active"/>
<field name="user_id" ref="base.user_root"/>
<field name="ref" model="product.product" search="[('name','=','service')]"/>
<field name="ref2" model="account.account" search="[('code','=','3.1')]"/>

OpenERP supports this, but the syntax is a bit complex I must say.
If I wanted to set the value of a reference field called "doc_ref" to a partner record with id='partner_record_id', I would use this:
<field name="doc_ref" eval="'res.partner,%d' % ref('partner_record_id')"/>
or a bit simpler without needing ref(), if the partner record is created in the same XML document:
<field name="doc_ref" eval="'res.partner,%d' % partner_record_id"/>
The trick is to render the value for the reference field by evaluating python code that gives a "model,id" result.
You can find more examples by looking for this kind of pattern in the OpenERP official addons code.
