Yup, that's no problem.

One question about semantics - if I save an object /without/ the 
recursive flag, what should happen to previously saved children of that 
object? I'm leaning towards thinking that they should be deleted. And if 
an object is saved with the recursive flag, any children that no longer 
exist should also be deleted. Does this sound sane?
