I'd do it the same way as UltraUser.

Some time ago I was thinking about how to implement "shop that lends dvds" (which is similar to this problem). It had to have database of dvds, database of users, list of all loans, list of active loans.

I found it very difficult to do it in efficient way

If I were to design sql database, it would be pretty straightforward. The problem in UR is, that attribute cannot be of "existing template" type. The attribute can only be string, number, date, ... and you have to fiddle with links and think about complicated searches and scenarios. It is ugly, considering that UR is in fact based on standard database.

I think sqlnotes would be ideal for this.

Kinook, would it be possible for attributes to be of another template type?
