Normally (I assume) when you use the many2many relationship the ORM creates a junction table for you and the order in which the records are returned for either direction is the order in which they were created/populated the database.
I have a situation where I have two entities:
The same sequence can be associated with more than one procedure, however each procedure has a unique sort order.
For instance procedure A, B, C may reference dozens of Sequences, but all share Sequence B, however Sequence B may be the first sequence on Procedure A, the second last on Procedure B, etc...
Would I solve this problem by simply introducing the junction table explicitly in the model - using double one to one relationships?
