as already mentioned here (but without any comments) i was wondering if one could link in any possible way an item set to a media.
It would be tedious to create an element, attach a media and link it as part of another element when the media is already meant to be so.
We are facing the same scenario in our use case. Several items should be able to use the same media. Unfortunately, Omeka does not offer it (yet?).
Our workaround would be to make every single media into an item and then create another item that references the individual media (which are now items). What do you think about this @jflatnes, @sinanatra ?
