This isn't a Rails forum, but I'll bite anyway.

I suspect the right way is to simply use "has_many :through" _instead_ of the 
habtm relationship. If you're needing to get through to the other side, you 
can (probably) do that, too -- at least, I remember this working, the last 
time I tried:

has_many :foos
has_many :bars, :through => :foos
has_many :others, :through => :bars

It's been awhile, though, so I'm not sure.
