This code assumes your XFN field is called 'rel' in models. See the last call (addLoadEvent down the bottom) for the two lines requiring modification; otherwise, aside from the Django-styling involved, it can be used anywhere.

The accompanying model.py and admin.py information can be found here: http://www.djangosnippets.org/snippets/1265/.

I'm no master programmer, so feedback/comments/criticism is more than welcome.

EDIT: Fixed my esoteric dev. comments and removed references to spawning more overlords.
