[Pulp-dev] Many-to-many joins in the API

After reading through the updating relationships section of the JSON API
spec [1], I kind of agree with @jortel that we shouldn’t expose the join
model unless it provides extra fields besides simply joining two models.
Also, it might be worth adding a “content_ids” field that can be used when
updating repositories (see [2]).

By the way, I also saw there was a django-rest-framework-json-api package
[3]. Might be worth considering.
