[Nitro] Possible BUG in lib/og/relation/has_many.rb (and possible fix)

Hi Bryan,

The collection has been and still is YAMLised as a Ruby object - that  
means I can serialise/de-serialise using YAML and the correct object  
type gets created.  All that I've done is modify the member_class  
variable so that it YAMLises as a string.  I've modified the  
behaviour of Og::Collection to understand that member_class is now  
initialised as a String as opposed to a Class.  This does not change  
the behaviour of Og::Collection as far as Og is concerned (it's all  
encapsulated), but when YAML kicks in, it now works.  Here's a pseudo- 
unit test (you'll need to ensure Foo and Bar are managed by Og).   
Note, I've not tested this verbatim :-)

require 'og'

class Foo
   property :foo_prop, String
   has_many :bars, Bar

class Bar
   property :bar_prop, String
   belongs_to :foo, Foo

bar = Bar.create
foo = Foo.create
foo.bars << bar
assert_equal foo, YAML::load( foo.to_yaml )

This should barf.  Apply my fix, it should work.
