class FaveType(models.Model):
    A FaveType is a "type" of relationship between a user and an object. This
    allows you to use one app (django-faves) for multiple types of 
    relationships. For example, perhaps you want to let users "favorite" 
    objects, but also add them to a "wishlist". Or to "flag" them as offensive.
    By creating multiple FaveType instances, you can do this sort of thing.
