I have a couple models that inherit from a base class that then
inherits from AR.
When they are used in a polymorphic relationship the “type” is always
the base class.
Just curious if anyone has a reason why it doesn’t use the actual
class rather then the base_class. I have patched AR to use the actual
class if !base_class.table_exists? but it adds another query each time
(which in turn fails some of the rails tests).
My only guess was for use with STI, but even then I am not sure if
there is a better solution then using the base_class
