you can pass the columnName, foreignKeyColumn or one of the other
attributes to the relationship classes when defining your columns
dict. See the constructor of one2one, one2many, etc

There is a silly reason this is coded that way: I hadn't heard about
SQL constrains at the time. I'll bring this up in a more general

Nope. Just a slightly younger me trying to show off with my knowlage
of PIL and Python's unpack syntax. Also I wondered if the unpacking
would work well with my __setattr__() methods.
Storing image data in the RDMBS was a reqirement of the project ORM
grew up with though.

For PIL checkout
If you ever have to work with images PIL's absolutely cool.
