I'd like to control what gets returned by the column accessor methods a little better to not return the record referenced by the foreign key in some cases. It appears I always get the entire record when I call

Hi Joe,
the relationship accessors return the related object(s). If their names
are equal to the foreign key column name the column and the relationship
accessors overlap and fulfill both purposes. I'd recommend to use
different names for them, for example $row->$colname and
$row->rel_$colname is my naming scheme.
