Be careful. You will have to deal with possibilities like the objects
being deleted since you ran your original query.

Even if you have the live objects index enabled, this will result in a
fresh fetch from the database:
my $artist = Artist->retrieve($id);
$artist = Artist->retrieve($id); # back to the db
There is also a private method called _attribute_delete() which can
remove specific columns from an object so that they have to be re-fetched.
