No, why? clipper is just a playground for me, to test the capabilities and 
limits of this concept of realtions. My thought was: it is possible to do 
reverse paernt-child relationjs, so there sill eventually be a module that 
will do that. 
Also: I feel that clipper-parent or clipper-child is too limiting. 
foo_relation.module might want to use the relations from clipper or any other 
parent-child relation too.

The weight column? Or am I misunderstanding you?

Yes, this has been bothering me too. So far I have not though up a better 
idea. Though some ideas have been cooking in my mind. A short summary will 
follow in the thread at http://drupal.org/node/28480.
uid:12 uid:13 is not a good solution, for it needs pattern postprocessing, a 
lot of database overhead (eight extra characters per relation) but I have 
some ideas.. :-)
