Hey. I'm wondering if there is a preferred pattern for doing StackReferences (or something similar) when using the Kubernetes Operator. For example, I have one stack that creates an IAM Role and then I have other stacks that want to consume that role's name for performing policy attachment. I imagine I can write the role name out to a secret on the cluster or I can construct the fully qualified name for the stack with the role but I can't help but feel there is a nicer way to do it. I couldn't find anything in the operator docs.
