It loads all of their primary keys into memory, but doesn't bless those
into objects until you fetch them from the iterator.  I guess it could
go either way, since there's some overhead in the construct() call.
Maybe a large result list would perform better with the iterator and a
small one (e.g. single result) would be better without it.  You'd have
to bench it to know for sure.
