I guess we're talking of an helper that would fetch all attributes 
without the need to explicit them all.

On a more or less related topic, I don't like having to explicitly add 
a bunch of selected variables in order to optimize later attribute 
fetching, as in :

 Any X, XN, XD, XT, XF WHERE X is Foo, X name XN, X date XD,
  X title XT, X foo XF

In my opinion, this seriously affects readability of complex queries. 
I would like a helper function for such case. For instance :

 rql = "Any X WHERE X is Foo" 
 rql = prefetch_rql(rql, {"X": ('name', 'date', 'title', 'foo')})

I obviously haven't thought much of the API but this is roughly the
