# question: can there be multiple links between the same two items? multiple
# contexts for an item? The reason I'm pondering this is that for the example
# above, it might make sense to have the link be a list (idiom, translation)
# rather than just simply 'idiom'. The ordering of the list should count, so
# that it's a 'translation' _of_ 'idiom', but I dunno. Are links and contexts
# really just the same? No, that's a good separation. Well, for now I can keep
# them as scalars and make them lists if I want to later.
