Or you could use the mxmRelation product, which does it for you 

Create a folder called "relations" somewhere in you aq path, and pop in 
instances of the relations product.

You can give them meaningfull id's like "students_in_class", 
'"customers_in_companies" etc.

It is relatively easy to use. As far as I know it is used as the 
"philosophical basis" for relations in Zope 3.
