Support supplying only field name in lookups #9

Currently, the model and field must be specified for lookups, however most field (of interest) have unique names across models. The implementation to resolve the lookup is the same as the with models (i.e. ensure no collisions).

One detail that will make lookups faster is indexing the location of fields and models. This would be a simple dictionary in reverse order:

self._field_index = {
    'common_name': [ModelA, ModelB, ModelC],
    'uncommon_name': [ModelC],

The model index will be the same structure, but with apps:

self._model_cache = {
    'ModelA': [app1],
    'ModelB': [app1],

The M(...) lookup in the example on the website would change from:

m = M(mt, title__salary__gt=50000)


m = M(mt, salary__gt=50000)
