As I stated this can lead to side effects because many plugins add
filters to 'posts_where' etc and use global conditionals (which are
irrelevant to my additional loop) to determine how to filter the
query. An example might be a plugin that filters 'posts_where' and
adds an additional clause when is_home() evaluates to true. I don't
want this clause showing up in my additional loop.
