using :group, :having, :select etc with eager loading through :include

I'm sure I've seen this on the list before, but I can't find anything in the
search.

The problem is that using :include in an ActiveRecord::Base#find aliases all
the columns, making it impossible to use some of the other find parameters

What's the usual solution to this?

You will have to forgo eager loading and either load the records of the
other models in separate queries, or use the :joins and :select options to
pull fields of interest in the other models into the base model.
