I'm building a jQuery carousel that will show slides with an image and text on my site. No problem there.

I would like to make the carousel as dynamic and as easy to change as possible. I have the content and pictures stored within my pages on various locations on the site already so I don't want to duplicate the contents.

I want to set up a has_many relation on my page class that refers to SiteTree objects (let's call it CarouselPages). This isn't a problem either.

What I want to have is a control in the CMS where I can point to all my pages that I would like to include in my carousel and that this selection should be saved to my CarouselPages.

I have been considering the HasManyComplexTableField but can also recall having seen a variant of the TreeDropdownField that could display checkboxes.

Has anyone else done something similar? What's your opinion?
