Please revise whether an idea of aliasing many to many linking tables is OK.

class Auth_User_Model extends ORM {

  protected $has_many = array('user_tokens');
  protected $has_and_belongs_to_many = array('user_roles' => 'user_role_links');


Replace in has(), add() and remove():

 if (($join_table = array_search(inflector::plural($model->object_name), $this->has_and_belongs_to_many)) === FALSE)
      return FALSE;

 $relationships = array_values($this->has_and_belongs_to_many);
 if (($join_table = $relationships[array_search(inflector::plural($model->object_name), array_keys($this->has_and_belongs_to_many))]) === FALSE)
      return FALSE;

Replace in function _ _get():
$join_table = $model->join_table($this->table_name);

if (isset($this->has_and_belongs_to_many[$column]))
    $join_table = $this->has_and_belongs_to_many[$column];
    $join_table = $model->join_table($this->table_name);

elseif (in_array($column, $this->has_and_belongs_to_many))

elseif (in_array($column, $this->has_and_belongs_to_many) || array_key_exists($column, $this->has_and_belongs_to_many))
