Re: Course<->topic relationship

So, to summarize,

Object-wise, Course will be direct descendant of Topic.
In database, there will be 0..1:1 relationship (some topics are
referenced by courses, only single topic can be referenced by
single course), and, if I understand Alexe's ideas correctly,
there will be set of accessor stored procedures for courses,
that internally will call relevant stored procedures of topic.
