I'm not sure what you have in mind, here.  I'll poke you on IRC if the
following is off target.

I refactored my code based on the idea I outlined (quoted above).  It
passes all the existing tests, plus one I added to simulate the proposed
change to make_column_dirty:

    delete $book->{_column_data}{cover_image};

I have attached an svn diff, but it's a bit difficult to read.  So, here
are the key methods I've overridden.  Does this look like a sane

    sub inflate_result {
	my ($class, $source, $me, $prefetch) = @_;

	my $new = $class->next::method($source, $me, $prefetch);
	while ( my($column, $data) = each %{$new->{_column_data}} ) {
	    if ( $source->column_info($column)->{is_fs_column} && defined $data ) {
		$new->{_fs_column_filename}{$column} = $data;
	return $new;

    sub set_column {
	my ($self, $column, $new_value) = @_;

        #Deletes file storage when an fs_column is set to undef.
	if ( !defined $new_value && $self->result_source->column_info($column)->{is_fs_column}
		&& $self->{_fs_column_filename}{$column} ) {
	    delete $self->{_fs_column_filename}{$column};

	return $self->next::method($column, $new_value);

    sub set_inflated_column {
	my ($self, $column, $inflated) = @_;

	$self->next::method($column, $inflated);

	# reinflate
	if ( defined $inflated && ref $inflated && ref $inflated ne 'SCALAR'
		&& $self->result_source->column_info($column)->{is_fs_column} ) {
	    $inflated = $self->{_inflated_column}{$column} = $self->_fs_column_storage($column);
	return $inflated;
