multiple Pick_me_to_call tags

I am trying to create an EST class, and I would like to have two
Pick_me_to_call fields, one for the EST itself (EST_Acc) and
one for the homologue found by fasta (Homologue_Acc), as
shown below:

?EST      Experiment ?Experiment XREF EST
          Species ?Species XREF EST
          Gene_Family ?Gene_Family XREF EST
          EST_Acc Pick_me_to_call Text Text
          dbEST_Id Text
          Plasmid ?Plasmid XREF EST
          Library ?Library XREF EST
          Paper ?Paper XREF EST
          Similar_to Description ?Text
                     Source ?Species
                     Homologue_Acc Pick_me_to_call Text Text
          Comment ?LongText
The problem is that ACEDB 4.5 won't allow two Pick_me_to_call
tags in a class. The class above causes the message

!! Duplicate tag Pick_me_to_call in model EST

to be printed. Is there a clean way around this? I already have
a class called GenBank that contains Pick_me_to_call:

?GenBank  Locus Text
          Accession Text
          Gene ?Gene XREF GenBank
          EST ?EST XREF GenBank
          Pick_me_to_call Text Text
So I could do it like this:

           EST_Acc ?GenBank
           Homologue_Acc ?GenBank
but it would be nice not to have to create a GenBank
record for every EST record. 

Is there a workaround that lets me have two
'Pick_me_to_call' tags in a class?
