Object attributes through habtm

It's a semi deprecated feature: getting attributes from the join table
automatically. The trend has since been to make that join table a
model in its own right.

I know that I can use a has_many :through, but sometimes habtm is better
in my application, since it doesn't clutter my project so much with
models I don't use, except for the relationship. For relations that
require more functionality, I use has_many :through.
