when conceiving this originally, I did toy with a `transitive` checkbox, then 
you could use transitive relations just like parent_of. But as the customer 
lost interest in this feature, so did I. Maybe Daniel will add it?

OTOH this case sounds more like composite relations: When partner A has 
relation X with B, and B relation Y with C, then A and C have relation Z. This 
also sounds like a very useful feature to have, and I think will be much less 
computationally expensive to implement if you don't just store the transitive 
closure above.
