Are you saying that after a search that fetching a column from a CDBI
object triggers another select from the database for that column even
if the column is in Essential?

Take a look at CDBI::Sweet.  There's a few things that might help.
With Sweet you can specify joins in your query.  And with Sweet you can
also define custom SQL which is helpful if you are doing any aggregate

If you have not already done this, you can create views and define new
CDBI classes for those.  That can help reduce the number of trips to
the database.
