Custom inflation method?

   Handel::Cart->has_a(thing => 'My::Artist',
     inflate => 'inflate_without_autoupdate',

and in your base class, something like:

   sub inflate_without_autoupdate {
     my ($class, $id) = @_;
     my $self = $class->_simple_bless($id);
     return $self;

but I haven't ever needed to do this, nor tested any of the above :)
