Good idea. I have searched a long time for solving this problem. Only
possibility now is to show a unique key-field as a part of the "current
value", start a query and have a look for the foreign-key, which is
bounded to the table/query of the form.

To keep it back-compat, this "bounded" value should better be reached by
"current bound value".
