I take a different approach. While generic keys are the best solution they
are not easy to work with. I like to start with using a foreign key to
whichever model and if the app is successful and I want to make it
pluggable, I'll refactor it to use generic keys.
IMO, It's OK for your project-specific apps to depend on each other. I just
try to keep the dependencies clear, so I don't get spaghetti code and coding
can be distributed.
