This is not currently supported as far as I know but there is a very
good reason why. First off, the general use case for has_many :through
is when you need to join two models AND include additional details about
the association. For instance if we have users and magazines then the
through association would be "subscription" BUT it also has other
attributes such as when the subscription was made and how many times
recurring payment has been received.
How would you specify the additional columns of information for the
relationship using the new fixtures method? The new way is just a list
of fixture names and would not be able to accommodate has many through
relationships that contained additional data.
I could imagine a syntax that could work but it would different. Not to
mention that in a has_many :through, the join table itself is a model
and so having fixtures for it somehow makes sense since it is actually
an activerecord model itself.
