Although I don't have a solution, I have three observations/questions:

1. The Cayenne model will need to have additional metadata about database indexes and constraints.
I've always liked that idea anyway but lacked the time to work on it personally. It could
open up interesting interactions with projects like liquibase [1]

2. Has Hibernate or any other ORM solved this problem in an interesting way? [2] Hibernate
appears to split "collection deletes/inserts" which I presume means "to-many" joined records.

3. Keeping the order that changes are added to the context is another simple approach that
leaves it up to the developer to get it right in code. It doesn't quite tell us what to do
with two updates to the same object that are collapsed into one, but otherwise it seems sensible
as an option.

[1] for a simplistic approach, but we could
go much further.
