Consider the following setup:
class Parent < ActiveRecord::Base
class Child < ActiveRecord::Base
And this console session:
p = Parent.find 41
p.some_attr = 'some_value'
c = p.children.build
By watching my log files, I can see that c.parent is querying the db
for the parent object. I want instead to access the existing in-memory
object (p), because I need access to the parent's some_attr value,
which is not yet stored in the database. Is there any way of doing
this? c.parent(force_reload=false) doesn't get me there.
