how or when does it generate the primary key for the object to be referenced by another object
before it is committed?  I was hoping to not have to worry about this as a "high-level" user
of Cayenne.

You are right, you don't need to worry about all that. Just create one context and save it
at the end. Cayenne tracks the relationships between objects with a temporary key internally,
but you don't need to think about that. Once Caynenne commits, everything is assigned proper
primary keys and joined.
